First pigs now the raccoons!

Raccoon Ringworm disease hits Brooklyn teen and baby

A rare, deadly disease that has left an infant brain damaged and a teenager blind in one eye, has been detected in Brooklyn, the Daily News has learned.

The city's Department of Health is on alert for Raccoon Ringworm, a disease contracted through contact with raccoon feces. It can cause permanent nerve damage and death.

Not sure if the jerky is safe or not.
