    The articles I have read indicated that this virus is only in store bought PD's at this time. Unless these animals are released into the wild, the problem will stay small and localised.

    The virus was transmitted when "domestic" PD (don't even think these are North American) were placed too close to infected animals in the store. I guess customs will have to do a better job of checking for infectous diseases in imported animals.

    Let's hope that they can quarantine these pets and keep them out of the wild.

    Thats funny that you are talking about this as I just saw a deal on the news tonight about a guy in texas selling PD's for pets. The news said he was getting up to $1000 from some customers in California. Crazy!!!

    I wouldn't trust them, especially after shooting them and not long after watching another go start eating on his dead buddy.

    MTBA, you beat me to it. My wife use to work in a family owned pet store. After just a few short months, she said no amount of money would get her to work in another. Lots of rashes, itching, and sinus problems.
    AND yes they all went away after quitting.
