We thank the residents of Andrew and Nodaway Counties, Missouri, who graciously allowed the sampling of wild and domestic animals on their properties. We also thank the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, the Andrew County Health Department, the Nodaway County Health Center, the Missouri Department of Conservation and participating veterinary clinics for their respective assistance. We specifically thank David Ashley, Department of Biology, Missouri Western State University (MWSU), for accommodating lab space for specimen processing and Luke Miller and Nathan Hubbard (USDA-APHIS-Wildlife Services) for assisting with mammalian field collections. Finally, we extend gratitude to Jason Velez for generating Vero E6 plates for the neutralization assays performed.
