Disease Threatens Metallica Concert

(Croatian Times) Up to 60 horses have been quarantined following an outbreak of leptospirosis in Zagreb's hippodrome just days before 30,000 people are expected to attend a Metallica concert to be held there on Sunday.

The illness is usually spread from rats to other animals but when transferred to humans - through contact with contaminated water by broken skin or through lining of the eye - it can cause miscarriages, kidney inflammation and possibly death.

The Metallica concert organizers did not seem concerned about the outbreak. "We should have been informed, but obviously they did not think it was necessary because they believe that there is no danger. The horses will not come into contact with the audience, and during the last 10 days they did not even walk around the area where the audience will be," said Vladimir Ivankovic, director of Lupa Promotions that organized the concert. - more on this story
