I'm Dying of the Plague, Pop.

Erik York was a 37-year old biologist at Grand Canyon National Park who died after biopsying a female mountain lion infected with the pneumonic plague.

The female mountain lion had a bloody nose, but her hide bore no other signs of trauma. York found the big cat lying motionless near the canyon's South Rim. He was determined to learn why she died.
Because the park lacks a forensics lab, he did the postmortem in his garage, in a village of about 2,000 park employees.

When York cut into the lion, he must have released a cloud of bacteria and breathed in. On Nov. 2, York was found dead, a 21st-century victim of plague, the disease that in the Middle Ages turned Europe into a vast mortuary.

Some experts are concerned that the disease may make a comback.
I have two terms for those men and women: pusies, and twats.
No one in contact with York got the disease.
