The first mosquito to test positive for West Nile virus in Bexar County was discovered recently on the Southeast Side.Why the heck did I mention this? Because every time I work anywhere on the southside I see way too many dead birds, which have apparently not died due to violence. A few weeks ago I saw two doves in one day that were in the process of dying when I saw them, just sitting there, about half-keeled over, too weak to even flop away when I walked past them.
San Antonio Metropolitan Health officials said the mosquito came from routine samples taken Friday off Roosevelt Avenue. Tests on Wednesday confirmed the findings.
