Fleas in the news

Water Flea Massacre
The vegan society has commented that they don't approve of Ecover's testing of detergents and cleaning supplies on Water Fleas. The result is that Ecover's products will no longer be able to put "vegan" on their marketing or products.

Collar Thieves
Thieves have stolen $3000 worth of flea collars from an animal hospital in Oregon.

Prairie Dog Plague!
A lab at Northern Arizona University has confirmed that two dead prairie dogs found near Flagstaff in Coconino County, Arizona were infected with bubonic plague. The disease is quite common in the area but no human cases have been seen since 1996.
