Brain eating waterborne amoeba in the news.

Postby Poke Boater » Sat Sep 29, 2007 10:38 pm

This story is biology related and here is a link to Phoenix TV's Channel 5 found at the Coast to Coast AM web site. This news was reported this week by host George Noory. on Hot Stories' second page today.

Humans swimming in warmed waters can be infected. What about waterfowl? Have any of you heard much about this danger that's killed six Americans?

The amoeba lives on the bottom.

PB :no: :thumbsdown: :banned:
#1 If a falling duck's head is "held up" shoot again.
#2 If a downed duck lays still on the water with it's head "held down" straight out and you detect ANY movement across the current or not with the wind shoot again.
