Snap Smiley n Me!! We must have the same minds to post at the same time LOL
ha ha, I know!!!
its so awful. ive only heard of hendra via stockies i had no idea how serious it is.
Thanks Smile n Me for update - and Mod 1 on other thread. Very sad and a horrible way to die. Thankfully the other person is improving (they say).
The clinic is defending their infectious control and hygiene practices yet the official word is Hendra is not easily passed from horse to human..?? Can't have it both ways. Unless direct from the bats of course...
I was just reading the news article.
How very tragic for all concerned
i didn't realise it was so serious
how bloody sad.
just too sad for words
This is so sad. Condolences to his family.
Condolences to his family RIP Ben
sincere sympathy to his family...
Oh jeez How horrible !
My sincerest condolences to the family
Just so sad
In shock really.............and there are two ladies still sick. Not as contagious as EI but deadly to humans. My friends horse was meant to be released last week from redlands but has been kept there. I hope that it all ends soon and the sick ladies recover and the horses that did not contract Hendra do get to go home. Poor Ben's family, my heart goes out to them
