BUBONIC PLAGUE IN PRAIRIE DOGS WAS DETECTED

Newsroom/El Comercio de Colorado

Denver Parks and Recreation (DPR) has temporarily closed access to First Creek in Denver. The closure of this area seeks to protect the health and public safety due to an outbreak of bubonic plague that affects the prairie dogs that live at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RMANWR), adjacent to First Creek. In recent weeks, authorities confirm that several prairie dogs that were found dead at the RMANWR had the bacteria that causes bubonic plague.

This plague, a non-native illness in North America, has been present in Colorado and the West for many years. This infectious disease is caused by the bacteria Yersinia pestis, that rodents and their fleas can transmit to humans. Due to risks that might be faced by those who visit the First Creek, DPR authorities implemented a temporary closure of the area. The area of this park is 198 acres and its main entrance is located at Peña Boulevard and 56th Avenue.

Taking precautions

DPR personnel will continue to monitor the colonies of prairie dogs to detect signs of this plague. These authorities recommend for the public to stay away from the areas where the prairie dogs live, avoiding any contact with them or with any other wild rodent. Experts also suggested not to touch any sick or dead animal in parks and areas near the place where the bubonic plague was detected. Pet should also stay away from these areas.

There antibiotics that are effective to treat the bubonic plague. But authorities emphasized that without a quick treatment, this infectious disease can have grave consequences and even cause death. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reminded the public that humans continue to get infected by the bubonic plague in rural areas in the West of the United States, and a large amount of cases continue to happen in some areas of Africa and Asia.
