(Wyo.)-Campbell County Dog Dies Of Flesh-Eating Bacteria

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 09/27/2012 10:02 AM
     GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) - A Campbell County dog died last week of the "flesh-eating bacteria" known as necrotizing fasciitis.
     Dr. Darren Lynde, a veterinarian at Animal Medical Center in Gillette, says it's unknown how the 6-year-old Great Dane was infected. But Lynde says the case is not related to three human cases of flesh-eating bacteria recently reported by Campbell County's Memorial Hospital.
     Lynde says it's rare for animals to be infected with the bacteria.
