Some non-viral, but still really cool infectious news regarding Anthrax

Assam State Zoo in India is beginning to vaccinate their rhinos (and all other ruminant mammals) against anthrax due to a report about contagious Bacillus anthracis on the campus. A 30 year old rhino named Jon died sudden from an acute case of anthrax. The public has been told not to panic, because “Jon led a charmed life until anthrax killed him.” How comforting.
