Anthrax Kills Ted Turner’s Bison

_An outbreak of the infectious disease anthrax has killed 25 domestic bison on Ted Turner's Flying D Ranch . .

“Anthrax can pop up any place at any time, but this outbreak was in a remote, well-contained area," state veterinarian Dr. Marty Zaluski said. "We're fortunate that the landowner recognized the disease early and took the appropriate action. . . .”

Anthrax can spread from animals to humans, usually as a result of direct contact with infected animals or animal products such as wool, hides and horns.

However, Montana has not had a reported case of human anthrax since 1961._
