Important information for anyone with animals

Important information regarding a local infestation of screwworm in the Florida Keys. Everyone with any kind of warm blooded animal - livestock or pet - should read this and be aware, particularly those in the vicinity of Big Pine and No Name Keys.

  1. We're snowbirds from NJ who travel to Little Torch Key every year where we spend the Winter months with our little dog. Should we reconsider our travel plans this year? The Zika was bad enough and now this Screw Worm threat. We are concerned about the animal checkpoints and fear that we will not be able to bring our little dog home with us should the situation escalate. If this is as bad as it seems, shouldn't the government cease allowing animals into as well as out of the keys?
