This photograph from 1969, depicted a number of Indonesian public health field workers, who’d captured, and put on display, these rats that were collected from ships in an Indonesian port, during that year’s plague epidemic. Plague is an infectious disease of animals and humans, caused by the bacterium, Yersinia pestis. People usually get plague from being bitten by a rodent flea that is carrying the plague bacterium, or by handling a plague infected animal.
