Leptospira bacteria cause leptospirosis that is found in water, food or soil contaminated by infected animal urine, usually in warm and tropical climates. Animals that may be infected include cows, pigs, horses, dogs, rodents and a variety of wild animals.

Leptospirosis is usually not transmitted from person to person.
