Swamp Fever Found In Jackson County

Last updated on Friday, May 30, 2008

(SEYMOUR)- A horse-killing virus has reappeared in Indiana for the first time since 2006.

Three horses on a Jackson County farm were put to sleep after testing positive for swamp fever, also known as equine infectious anemia.

Horses, donkeys or mules can catch the disease from being bitten by flies which have bitten other infected animals.
