Just read that Grand Teton Park officials have discovered the same Amoeba in the Kelly Warm Springs north of Jackson Wyo. This is a popular place for folks to go and practice rolls and or just take a little swim. Park officials have at this time decided not to close the warm spring are advising people to not put your head under water and use at your own risk. Not good

Is this the same amoeba that has been found in the Bath (England) hot springs a couple of decades ago?

Now if only the Epi-Pen owners were as honorable.
