Anthrax

Anthrax is a naturally occurring disease caused by a spore-forming bacterium called Bacillus anthracis. It can have devastating effects on cattle, sheep, goats, horses and bison.

In Canada, anthrax is a reportable disease under the Health of Animals Act, and all cases must be reported to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).
