Wisconsin confirms case of West Nile virus in Belgian gelding horse

Wisconsin confirms a case of West Nile virus in a course.

It is a 9-year-old Belgian gelding and marks the first case in three years for the Badger State.

Humans cannot get the virus from horses, but both species can get it from mosquitoes which get it from birds. Ag officials recommend horse owners remove stagnant water from their property and keep gutters and wheel barrows clean and dry.
