Bubonic Plague Carrying Lab Mice Head Out on the Town.

Oopsie (via Michelle Malkin):

Officials said the animals could have been stolen from the center or simply misplaced in a colossal accounting error at one of the top-level bio-containment labs in the state. The incident occurred more than two weeks ago and was confirmed only yesterday after questions were raised by The Star-Ledger.... State Health Commissioner Fred Jacobs said mice infected with plague die "very fast," so "the risk to the public ... is probably slim to none.”

Why, it’s just like that heartwarming childrens’s story, The Secret of Nimh ….except with more Bubonic Plague.
