It's not a horror movie and not a fantasy about aliens, but a harsh reality. Imagine that you are the owner of a farm and one morning went to check on their animals. And in the barn you find a cow, which is fully bled .

If you live in Puerto Rico, you probably think of the notorious Chupacabra, but if in the United States, aliens, secret cults or secret government biological tests. But if you're in the U.S. state of North Carolina, your first thoughts will be about... incredibly brood mites.

That such a warning was recently issued by the local veterinarian Doug Makecom, which recalls all owners of livestock and Pets should be vigilant for ticks, which are more than feel good this hot summer.

Excerpt from the document:

The recent deaths of five cows in the County of Surry were associated with acute anemia caused by infected ticks. Samples were sent to the Department of public health NC Department of infectious diseases for identification, which confirmed the presence of mites of the Asian longhorns.

"This is the fourth confirmed case in North Carolina in 2018, and the first case was registered in this year. Previous cases have been detected in the districts of Polk, Rutherford and Davidson, " said Mecks.

"The deceased young bull, brought to our Northwest laboratory for the diagnosis of animal diseases, there were more than 1000 ticks, and the owner lost another four in the same circumstances".

It was also described that the County Surry 5 cows were killed mites that literally sucked his blood. Samples of ticks were sent to the lab for analysis and it was found that brood parasite refers to the Asian Longhorn tick (Haemaphysalis longicornis).

This species is invasive, its homeland in China, Japan and Korea and in the U.S. he was only a few years ago, but has already multiplied so that began to kill large animals.

As reported these mites bite people, but so far, fortunately, people no one was really hurt. However, cows kept outdoors, where these ticks are in abundance.

Recently one of the farmers came to the corral to check on the young bull and with horror saw him lying on the ground and the dead and his body was covered with not less than a THOUSAND mites. The autopsy showed that the parasites literally suck it out alive.

"For the first time the Asian Longhorn mite was discovered in the U.S. in 2010, and then he sat on a deer. Since then it has spread to 67 counties in 10 States," - said in the warning.

Given the fact that one bull was found about a thousand of these creatures, you can imagine how much at ease they feel in the nearby bushes and grass. They breed incredibly fast and can be played in the usual way and through parthenogenesis, without the participation of males.
