"Besides the human cases, we're also having animal cases," Ettestad said. "Those span from Taos County all the way down north-central New Mexico. I don't suspect that plague is just in one small area, it seems to be countywide in Santa Fe."

A 54-year-old man is the third person to be confirmed with the potentially deadly infection, which has claimed the life of an 8-year-old boy. The boy's 10-year-old sister was also infected, Ettestad said.

Symptoms of bubonic plague include swollen lymph nodes and a high fever. The bacterial disease has been known to be spread by fleas and rodents, the newspaper said.

the second phase of bubonic plague is deadly pneumonic plague so keep all of your flea ridden pets on very serious flea control.. cause infected fleas cause the bubonic plague to begin with..........yikes ..
