Osceola County fair drops petting zoo

The future of petting zoos at the Osceola County Fair is up in the air, according to WESH.
Due to the E. coli outbreak at three Florida fairs last year, for the first time in its 62-year history, there will be no petting zoo at the Osceola County Fair.
More than two dozen people contracted E. coli at petting zoos in Tampa, Plant City and Orange County early last year, along with dozens of other suspected cases.
For the time being, only 4-H members are allowed to touch animals at the Fair. Officials are not sure if they will ever reintroduce the petting zoo.
