Local Man Hospitalized for Tularemia

rabbitNorthern Colorado – A Larimer County resident became sick with tularemia in late July and was hospitalized for the illness in early August, according to local health officials. The man may have been exposed while mowing a property in Weld County outside Windsor where rabbits had been plentiful this summer but had recently declined. An environmental investigation of the property by Weld County’s health department found no rabbit carcasses or conclusive evidence of tularemia; however, the mowed property is the most likely site of exposure. Learn more about tularemia and how to keep your pets safe here.
