Missouri has plenty of deadly spiders and snakes that could either end your life or cause you to have a very bad day.

I couldn't stop laughing when I learned it and you might respond the same way, too.
I have to confess that I didn't know this is possible, but it is. There are reports that two race horses at a track in Illinois are confirmed to have herpes. I now know more than I ever wanted to know about horse diseases.
