"The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and CS Veterinary Division shared an advisory to livestock owners to watch out for the ticks after five cows were ruled dead by acute anemia — which occurs when there is an “abrupt drop” in red blood cells, typically caused by acute hemorrhage or the destruction of red blood cells."
