New Mexico health officials confirm there have been four cases of plague and ten cases of Tularemia reported in animals around the state so far this year.
The two most recent cases of Tularemia were found in dead rabbits in the Eldorado area of Santa Fe County this week.
Both are bacterial diseases that both humans and pets can catch. They can be treated with antibiotics but health officials again warn not to touch wild or dead animals.
