This photograph depicted a tract of pastureland populated by a herd of cows and sheep (see PHIL 19840), which were being managed by two herders. In this view, you could see a group of sheep, as they were in the process of crossing a rural roadway. The image was captured during an investigation, by a Georgian Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) team, into a cutaneous anthrax outbreak that involved the possible contamination of this grassland. Therefore, the animals, and the pasture itself, along with the human population, were all tested for the existence of Bacillus anthracis bacteria, or spores. The investigation took place in the Kakheti region, of Eastern Georgia, in 2012.
