Quote:
The C.D.C. said they can carry a bacterial illness called brucellosis.

"People get it from being exposed to cattle: cattle, pigs, hogs."


While the warning is valid, it isn't anything new or involved in any sort of particular current epidemic. It also isn't a disease limited to cattle, pigs, and hogs, LOL.

It is found in sheep, goats, bison, elk, deer, bighorn sheep, muskox, caribou, reindeer, canids (domestic dog, coyotes, foxes), rabbits, opossums, raccoons, etc.

Proper raw flesh-handling procedures always should be followed when processing livestock or game. Livestock in general are particular brucellosis carriers to which folks may most often be exposed, but it isn't limited to that range of animals at all.

They DO carry it and YOU can get it from them!! I got it about 20 years ago thru a cut in my hand while cleaning a hog from a hunting property in Pumpkinvine, Texas. It didnt kill me but I thought I was gonna die. It took Drs. a long time and 5 days in Medical Center Hosp. to diagnose and begin treating the bacteria. The Tetracycline 500 mil 4 times a day almost killed me too! Sick, sick, sick! The more hogs in an area the more likely the desease. It was and is rare. So rare that the CDC contacted me to try and locate the property where I got infected! Another one to be aware of is leptospirosis (rabbit fever). Same way to get infected. Real bad sickness also.

that's why we don't touch ANYTHING without latex gloves on. My wife got some sort of an bacterial infection a few years back from an axis deer that came in in June. She had cuts all over her arms from clearing briars and didn't think anythingabout it. Took a year and a half of antibiotic treatment to get rid off it. Thank god at that time we had health insurance. Zoonosis is a big issue in our profession.

Kind of like doing the nastys with a "bar" chick, glove up and you should be ok. Unless your glove breaks then you're going to the clinic for antibiotics and the day after pill.

Again, thanks for posting this. Does anyone know what percentage of hogs might carry this?

My worries with things like this is if you get it, figuring out exactly what is wrong. The kids are always coming down with something - and I would be worried that I wouldn't realize that this was actually the cause. Before reading this, I would never have linked the two.

Thanks again for posting this RWH24!

So this can only be transmitted during carrying, cleaning, etc. This can't be contracted by eating an infected hog? Is this correct?

No, not correct. Insufficient cooked and consumed hog can still transmit all sorts of nasties.

Cook your wild hogs to 170 to avoid 99% of any of these problems.

Same goes with chicken. 13% of chicken sold in stores has it. If you eat chicken, 100% chance you've eaten a chicken with salmonella, if you got sick, then you know it, but if you didn't, it just means you cooked your chicken enough to kill off the bacteria.

When we were young, we never used hand protection when dressing anything. Now, I never touch any dead game animals or even coons and possoms and the like without latex gloves.

I use latex gloves (mechanics kind is stronger) with cheap gloves over the top (like golf or something thin with grip). This helps to keep the latex from tearing.

This isn't anything new and I believe it has been discussed a few times on this forum. Just the same, it never hurts to remind folks.

I always use high quality latex gloves when cleaning game.

Gloves while cleaning, and just as important, and proper cooking.....

Always use gloves. Another reason why I just leave them lay where they die.
