Default A new tick found.

Seeing the post about ticks and fleas this afternoon, in the Vendor section, reminded me of this.

A tick, different to the usual run of the mill tick has been reported found, by Public Health England. Worryingly it is the tick which "Can" carry Ebola. To my knowledge only one tick has been found, and this was not carrying Ebola. But then again, most people remove any ticks found themselves, so there could me more around, just not reported. But I think we can safely say that if there are more then they are not infected of we would have heard all about it. So no need to panic, just be aware.
