"In consultation with our veterinarian team and independent animal health experts, we will develop an additional action plan should our animals need to be treated with antibiotics as a precaution once we receive the results of the additional testing on Bud," the spokeswoman said.

The Affton-area farm, which had been owned at one time by Ulysses S. Grant and was acquired by August A. Busch Sr. in 1903, has been a public attraction for more than 60 years. The wildlife preserve section encompasses about 198 acres, while the Busch mansion is on about 22 acres of private property.

Again, RIP, Bud.
