Hazards of Getting Sick from Contact with Farm Animals at Fairs and Petting Zoos

By Aurora A. Saulo

Category Reports
Abstract

Animals exhibited at fairs, farm centers, and in petting zoos are very popular and educational, and they bring much joy to people, especially children, but in addition to warm memories of holding them, there is risk that immunocompromised people may take home harmful—even deadly—pathogens. Fortunately, observing sanitation precautions can reduce the risks involved with contact with farm animals.
