Fish and Game: bacterial blood infection found in Idaho Elk

Officials on Saturday that have been diagnosed with infection and identification of animal brushes and animals in Idaho were recognized for the first time.

In the release of news, the Fish Department and Idaho Game said it declared a traponema tooth disease case related to any animal killed by a hunter near White Bird last year.

It is a bacterial infection that was first identified in Washington nearby in 2000 and later in North Oregon.

"TAHD causes a spirochete bacteria that causes abnormalities and abnormalities in France," according to the release of Fish and Game.

According to Washington's wildlife officers, bacteria causes a lease or ulcers that may be evaporated, broken or boomous and may have a tendency.

There is no sign that the bacteria affects meat or organs, and Idaho officials said there is no danger to people from plants that take an animal to the pain.

The fish and the game are increasing the surveillance of the disease and asks that the report publishes that they are having trouble walking or having unusual brushes. If you are harvesting an animal that appears to have the disease, you can bring the lower limbs to the Fish and Game office for testing.

Southwest Washington is the most prevalent sound disease, and Fish and Game officials said before this incident that the disease was not believed in Idaho.

"Fish and Game teams have occasionally announced that they have received information from the public about members around the state with abnormal or weaknesses," said the agency in the release. "It is not known that there are positive causes of unusualities or crises in these other cases, but can be injured, arthritis, viral infections and other bacterial and other infections."

Similar treponema bacteria are responsible for hunting diseases in cattle and sheep – bovine digital dermatitis and infectious ovine digital dermatitis. Washington officials said the livestock that are experiencing problems like an office in areas where the disease is widespread is not pointed out.

Still, Fish and Game Idaho have notified the Department of Agriculture State to the question.

"Fish and Game are telling us from professional courtesy but also for warning warnings," said Chanel Tewalt, spokesman for the Department of Agriculture.

Tewalt said that the agency heard any indication of similar issues in Idaho livestock.

It is not yet clear how the disease goes between animals, and there is no current vaccine to prevent or treat, Washington officials said.

"Similar diseases in livestock are dealt with by allowing them to walk through a cosmetic and cleaning bath day and to beat their hearts, but this is not an option to be free," according to the Washington Fisheries and Wildlife Department website.
