Antibiotic-Resistant E. Coli Have Infected Giraffes

Story :

Humans are not only creating antibiotic-resistant strains of E. coli, but we’re spreading them to giraffes and other members of the animal kingdom, according to a new study published in Applied and Environmental Microbiology.

The study, which examined samples from 195 wild giraffes living in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy wildlife reserve in central Kenya, found that 5.1 percent of the giraffes were resistant to antibiotics. Of these resistant giraffes, 30 percent of them were resistant to more than one antibiotic, such as amoxicillin, oxytetracycline, and co-trimoxazole.

In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.
