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.

Thanks! Well aware it is brucellosis. Was just a play on words. And yes, you can catch all sorts of disease handling animals.

Click the image to open in full size.I have a few Scottish Highlanders (cows) on my property that love to scratch on the barbed wire fencing. Everywhere they scratch they leave a ball of fur that sounds like the bison fur you're talking about. This stuff makes great bonefish flies as I have red, tan, and white animals. I also use the underfur from brushing my dead grass colored Chesapeake Bay retriever. If I want dubbing I put in my coffee grinder (dedicated to the tying bench) and give it a whirl. The stuff works great.Click the image to open in full size.
