Brucellosis found in cattle herd

A new case of brucellosis has been found in a cattle herd in northwest Wyoming, and the herd has been placed in quarantine.

The Wyoming Livestock Board says additional tests are being conducted on the herd in Teton County to confirm the disease.

It says Wyoming state veterinarian, Dr. Jim Logan, does not believe there are any additional herds involved at this time.

The Teton County case is not related to the case found in early October in Park County.

Brucellosis is a bacterial disease that can cause cattle, elk, and bison to abort their pregnancies, typically late term. All of Wyoming’s brucellosis cases since 1988 have been caused by transmission from infected wildlife to cattle or domestic bison.
