You're well aware you need to check for ticks, but have you ever seen one? This large tick was pulled off a dog's forehead outside of Sault Ste. Marie, and it still has a chunk of flesh in its mouth.
Ticks can carry a large number of diseases that can become chronic lifelong ordeals for both humans and pets.
In the coming weeks, Village Media will be running a series of videos meant to enlighten and/or entertain you while we all go through this period of COVID-19 isolation. We hope you enjoy!
