It is not unusual to find bubonic plague in the West Texas rodent population, according to the Texas Health and Human Services Department. It’s spread to people by direct contact with infected animals such as prairie dogs, squirrels, cats, rats and mice. The odds of this happening are low, but take care anyway. Plague fully deserves its dread-disease status and can be fatal if not treated promptly. You can say that again. Plague epidemics agonized humans for centuries. The 14th Century outbreak in Europe was particularly notorious for wiping out up to half the population. Thankfully, modern medicine has brought the mortality rate of plague in the United States down to about 1 in 7. Between five and 15 Americans die from plague in an average year
There were no human bubonic plague cases in New Mexico last year, and six in 2009.

Plague is a disease that is transmitted from infected animals, usually by fleas, to humans. Plague then may be transmitted from humans to others by direct contact or by touching or breathing droplets that contain the bacterium, Yersinia pestis. Untreated plague causes much suffering and deaths in humans.
