Yosemite National Park IDs area of concern for the Hantavirus
Yosemite National Park, Calif. (KFSN) -- Yosemite National Park officials have identified another area of concern for the Hantavirus.
Rangers have found the bear boxes where campers keep their food are attracting deer mice -- the animals that carry the Hantavirus.
State and federal health inspectors were in Yosemite Monday.
So far, three people have died, and nine have been sickened by the Hantavirus since mid-June.
