A Wildlife biologist at Grand Canyon State Park died after being infected with the plague, presumably by a mountain corpse he dissected. This is not uncommon in the southwest for a reason which neither the article in the Arizona Republic or the Med Headlines tells us. But, in any case, it is a spectacularly frightening thing so please report it in brief everywhere. I'm not sure if med headlines is a newspaper or what, maybe they just compiled their stats from other sources, but it's still relevant because each of these publications targeted a different audience and adjusted their information accordingly.
The Arizona Republic piece was picked up by USA Today. It revolves around the guy, how he caught it, what his job was and how he would be buried. The Med one revolves around medical issues of all things. In this one the first thing that catches your eye is a graphic showing how bubonic plague is passed from rats (the rat in the graphic is also impossibly cute, I can say this because I have experienced rats with my own eyes and they are nothing like the cuddly creature pictured), to a flea, to a human. The article itself is brief but it focuses more on how the disease was transmitted, what the common carriers are, where and who normally gets infected. It's information relevant to medical staff and doctors while the Arizona Republic is a human-interest story largely revolving around the man himself.
