West Nile has been discovered in Boone County, the only problem, the state health department won't tell local leaders where apparently a horse in Boone County was infected with the mosquito borne illness and died.
But the Illinois Department of Agriculture refuses to release the exact location. Now Boone county is taking the state to court saying this is a public health issue and residents in the county have a right to know.
Right now, the trial is scheduled for July 13Th. July is one of the busiest months for the west Nile virus.
