Anthrax can occur in wild and domestic animals that graze, such as cattle, sheep, and goats. Usually, anthrax is transmitted to people when they have contact with infected animals or animal products such as wool, hides, and hair). Although infection in people usually occurs through the skin, it can also result from inhaling spores or eating contaminated, undercooked meat. Skin anthrax may bespread from person to person by direct contact with an infected person or an object contaminated by an infected person. However, anthrax due to inhaling spores (inhalation anthrax) or due to eating contaminated meat (gastrointestinal anthrax) is not spread from person to person. If people have inhalation anthrax symptoms suggesting that the brain may be affected, doctors may also do a spinal.
