Update: Tularemia in Friesland



In mid-April another hare from the area surrounding the Friesian town of Akkrum, submitted to the Dutch Wildlife Health Centre (DWHC) for post-mortem exam, tested positive for tularemia. This brings the total number of tularemia-positive hares in 2015 to 11, nine of which are from this area, the other two from a more southerly part of Friesland and the East of the province of Overijssel (see map).
