Excluding domestic sheep
We don't know that yet. I only know that based on the area of that bacterium genome that we look at thus far. It tells us that it's Michael plasma over pneumonia so we know that these different species carry mycoplasma ovipneumoniae. What we don't know is how genetically related they are or if they are different. We need to investigate that further. I do know there has been the mycoplasma ovipneumoniae that we have found in the caribou the moose in Alaska, Alaska doesn't have pneumonia problems in their wildlife species although they have the presence of mycoplasma ovipneumoniae.”
Wouldn't domestic sheepherders be relieved if they couldn't be exclusively blamed for infecting bighorns.
