KDHE still investigating wildlife park

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) and Sedgwick County Health Department (SCHD) continue to investigate cases of illness associated with Tanganyika Wildlife Park in Goddard, Kan., just west of Wichita. KDHE became aware of the possible link between the cases on Friday, June 18 and began investigation the same day. Initially, there were three cases that were identified as linked to the park. These cases have tested positive for Shigella bacteria. Shigella spreads easily; just a small number of bacteria can spread illness.
