E. coli outbreaks at fairs and petting zoos

The Moose Jaw Times Herald reports that fair organizers are increasingly addressing issues related to human-animal interaction.

The Western Fair that year had 61 cases of E. coli traced back to fair barns with seven confirmed cases, one leading to severe kidney illness. Since 2004, at least seven U.S. fairs have been sued over E. coli outbreaks traced to livestock events at fairs.

Cows are not the only culprit.  Sheep, goats, and other animals also carry harmful E. coli in their intestinal tracts.
