Durham Animal Control: Tapeworm Found in Wildlife
We often think of wildlife animals as being invincible especially when it comes to the numerous viruses and bacteria that endanger human health. But wildlife animals are just as susceptible to ailments as people. In fact, one parasite, the tapeworm or Echinococcus multilocularis (E.multilocularis), is wreaking havoc on the wildlife population of North America. This has given rise to the need for strategic animal control efforts to protect Durham’s residents, pets and wildlife animals from the proliferation of the parasite.
