Small game season for several rabbits and hares, fox, pine squirrel and beavers is underway. These animals can carry tularemia, a bacterial infection that can be fatal in humans and animals.

Although it can affect all mammals, the disease is commonly found in rabbits and rodents. Hunters should avoid sick or dead animals. Do not allow your pets to consume animal carcasses -- they could contract tularemia and pass it on to you. Wear rubber gloves when handling animal tissues, recommended even if the animal doesn't appear to be sick. Visit cpw.state.co.us for more precautions.
