Black Death Discovered In Oregon: Man Contracts Bubonic Plague From Cat, Hospitalized In 'Critical Condition'
[link to www.ibtimes.com]

The Black Death, a strain of bubonic plague that destroyed nearly a third of Europe's entire population between 1347 and 1369, has been found in Oregon. Health officials in Portland have confirmed that a man contracted the plague after getting bitten by a cat. The unidentified man, who is currently in his 50s, had tried to pry a dead mouse from a stray cat's mouth on June 2 when the cat attacked him.

so bubonic plague is a treatable bacterial illness.

a big deal during times without antibiotics, not *such* a big deal now.

a tad interesting, but sorry doomster, no black death doom for you. :(

Who on earth would try to take a dead mouse from a STRAY cat. Sounds very fishy to me. Or maybe it's mousy.

"Health officials in central Oregon arent blaming the cat for what happened." Really, I thought it was the cats fault at first..but really, why was he trying to pry a mouse out of a cats mouth, cats eat mice and sounds like a good way to get bit.

He probably thought it was alive and was trying to save it. Still pretty dumb though, you cant disrupt nature, cats eat mice. Or HE fancies dead mice..
