Yup, red about that. I fear when these things somehow cross-breed with lonestar ticks, and we have an army of clone ticks that make you allergic to red meat. :shock:

It isn't just red meat. One of the animal handlers at my work got infected. Beef, pork, at it's worst if she ate too much chicken. All became life threatening events when her throat swelled shut. Fish was the only safe meat. Even vegetable's cooked in lard. Whatever treatment the doc's have her on , she is showing improvement. But she will never eat Beef again. Pretty tuff for a life long cowgirl.
As of now I bet you got me wrong

John Titor was right
