RAYTOWN, Mo. (AP) - State agriculture officials have quarantined a horse in Raytown that has a potentially fatal disease.
The horse stabled at the Raytown facility tested positive for equine piroplasmosis and was admitted to a Kansas animal hospital earlier this month.
Equine piroplasmosis is a tick-borne disease that can be fatal. Officials say it poses no threat to humans.
