The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is working with Texas health officials to investigate what may be that state’s first known case of local mosquito-borne Zika infection. Zika is primarily spread by the bite of an infected Aedes aegypti mosquito, pictured here, though the virus can also be sexually transmitted. Florida became the first state to report a locally acquired Zika infection in late July.

  • Deputies rescue bloodhound trapped under car on California highway

    A Placer County Sheriff’s deputy and another California Highway Patrol officer rescued a dog trapped under a vehicle after being hit on Highway 80 east of Penryn, California on January 18. The Placer County Sheriff’s Office said a deputy was driving along the eastbound lanes of traffic when the deputy saw a bloodhound running frantically across the highway. Other motorists tried to avoid hitting the scared dog, and the deputy tried to slow traffic and save the animal from the busy roadway. The dog then ran the opposite direction, where he was hit by a passing car, becoming pinned underneath with its paw under the rear tire. Using a floor jack, the two officers were able to lift the car and save the dog.
