A wildlife expert at the Grand Canyon died from Hantavirus infection a few years ago.He had done an autopsy on a mountain lion and died about three or four days later.So be sure to wear latex gloves when butchering game this fall or handling dead animals in the field or around the house.Some type of breathing mask would not hurt either.Dead men say the possibility is so.Be aware,Be safe!
