Horse quarantined in Raytown with tick disease

RAYTOWN, Mo. (AP)--State agriculture officials have quarantined a horse in Raytown that has a potentially fatal disease.

The horse stabled at the Raytown facility tested positive for equine piroplasmosis and was admitted to a Kansas animal hospital earlier this month.

Equine piroplasmosis is a tick-borne disease that can be fatal. Officials say it poses no threat to humans.
