News

CLOVIS, N.M. (KRQE) – Officials have confirmed that West Nile Virus is responsible for the death of an alpaca in Curry County.

“Echo” died last month at Windrush Alpaca Farm in Clovis. The farm’s owners say he started showing strange neurological symptoms and rapidly declined.

They had to euthanize him two days later. A blood test confirmed it was West Nile.

The owners say they are being as proactive as they can in keeping mosquitoes out of the area. They’re warning others to take steps as well.
