Since the winter of 1955, a very severe outbreak of a highly contagious disease has destroyed thousands of dogs in France. It was determined that the disease had originated in Normandy and from there it spread to the English Channel and then to the Paris suburbs. Afterwards, similar cases were diagnosed in many parts of France.
