Unknown illness leads to the euthanization of two horses on campus

LCCC’s agriculture division is taking precautionary steps after two horses had to be euthanized for an unknown illness on campus.


Pathology reports have not yet come in but EHV-1 and EHV-4, two common diseases, have been ruled out as the cause, according to an LCCC press release. Another horse has been diagnosed with strangles, an equine respiratory disease, the release said. It is not thought to be connected to the two deaths.


The sick horse has been isolated as a precautionary measure. No horses will be permitted or allowed to leave the campus at this time. LCCC has rescheduled the Shawn Dubie Memorial Rodeo, scheduled to take place on Oct. 12-15, to the spring.
