Summary: The article I read was about how deer in southern florida began to suddenly become ill and eventually die from that illness. Scientists were baffled by the sudden death of the deer, so they began an investigation. The scientist had discovered that an extinct parasite was no longer extinct but very much alive and thriving in the deers. The parasite is called the "screwworm fly". The recents deaths of the deer have had a major impact on the livestock of southern Florida. The Government step into the situation and deemed there to be an animal quarantine imposed by officials in Florida in early October, and an agricultural emergency was declared to avoid the spread of the parasite.To eradicate the screwworm, seven million fly pupae sterilized by radiation are being released each week in the Florida Keys. The female mates only once in her lifetime, so the idea is that if the female mates with a sterilized fly, the screwworm infestation should be over in about six months.
