Swine Flu is Back

Swine flu, also known as H1N1, first caused a fright in 2009, but now, research shows that it was found in Elephant seals living on the coast of central California. This is the first report of the Swine Flu virus being carried by a marine mammal. No one is certain where it came from, but people are advised that it is unsafe to go looking for animals at the coast without precaution.
