A West Nile virus outbreak has hit Wisconsin turkey handlers. "Twenty percent of those tested at the farms earlier this year were found to carry antibodies to the potentially fatal mosquito-borne virus." What's the likely transmission agent? You guessed it: Health officials in Wisconsin are focusing on a potential connection to exposure to turkey feces... West Nile was detected in the feces of female turkeys tested at one of the farms, according to the [CDC] study." Mmmmmm, West Nile...
