I have been hearing about some blackleg in the area It might have been blackleg or it might have been pneumonia, but the feller said he was pretty sure it wasn’t pneumonia. If it wasn’t having trouble breathing, it had to be blackleg. Of course, a dead animal doesn’t have any trouble breathing, no gasping and coughing at all! I would sure enough believe that part of the story.
