Grand Canyon Officials Initiate Monthly Plague Monitoring

The National Park Service and the Coconino County Public Health Services District will begin a monthly monitoring for plague at various locations at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park. The process includes trapping and anesthetizing squirrels, removing fleas found on the squirrels, and test them for the presence of plague. There is no cause for alarm, but this monitoring is done as a precaution and preventative measure.
