Guessing if I use a little of the Mrs unscented Woolite that she washed hand washes sweaters in should work. Thanks again.
It is actually Brucellosis, and is endemic in Yellowstone Bison. If you contracted it from dubbing fur, it would be very rare but not impossible. Some of the fur could have been contaminated by saliva or a scrape.
"More than 50 percent of the bison in YNP test positive for brucellosis. A positive test indicates that animals have been exposed and are most likely infected."
"Bacteria can also enter wounds in the skin/mucous membranes through contact with infected animals.
