WY-Horse Virus
Crews disinfect Wyoming barns after reports of horse virus
The Associaed Press - February 7, 2018

GILLETTE, Wyo. - A crew is working on sanitizing and disinfecting barns at a multi-event facility in Gillette after reports of a horse virus.

The Gillette News Record reports one horse in the area has been euthanized and another is suspected of suffering from equine herpes virus or EHV-1.

The two horses had competed in events at Cam-plex in the past three weeks.

Cam-plex said in a statement that it's unlikely that either of the horses contracted the disease while they competed at their facility.

Staff cleaned the East Pavilion and Barn No. 3 as a precaution and at the recommendation of the Wyoming Livestock Board and a local veterinarian.
