Moxee Horse Infected With West Nile Virus

YAKIMA, Wash. - The year's first case of West Nile Virus in Washington has popped up near Moxee.  Lab results just confirmed a horse has been infected.

It's an eight year-old quarter horse, and the Washington State Department of Agriculture is sure it contracted the virus here.

One Yakima County horse also tested positive last year, but there have been no human cases in the area.
