Strep Outbreak Kills Dogs at New York Animal Shelter

At least four dogs died after being stricken with a deadly illness at an animal shelter in Brooklyn.

The illness, known as Strep Zoo, is very contagious and may have affected other dogs in the shelter. As a precaution, the other dogs currently in the shelter have been put on penicillin and temporarily close.

The shelter was reopened yesterday.  No further deaths or cases of the illness in other shelters has been reported.
