E-M:/ Michigan hunter contracts bovine TB, state says



 
(Update, Traverse City-AP, January 6, 2005, 11:44 a.m.) A Michigan hunter has been diagnosed with bovine tuberculosis, which he apparently contracted while field-dressing a deer he killed in October in Alcona County, state health officials said Thursday.
