Abstract

Accurate detection of infection with Mycobacterium bovis in live badgers would enable targeted tuberculosis control. Practical challenges in sampling wild badger populations mean that diagnosis of infection at the group (rather than the individual) level is attractive. We modelled data spanning 7...

Abstract

This article describes the licencing and requirements for a training course on how to implement a trapping and shooting programme for wild badgers (Meles meles) which act as reservoirs for Mycobacterium bovis. This training course aims to meet welfare and regulatory standards in the control of...

Cage-trapping and shooting of badgers under licence to prevent the spread of bovine TB in cattle: best practice guidance, 2012, pp 19 pp.
Abstract

Culling is often considered as a tool for controlling wildlife diseases that can also infect people or livestock. Culling European badgers Meles meles can cause both positive and negative effects on the incidence of bovine tuberculosis (TB) in cattle. One factor likely to influence the outcome of...

Abstract

Many ecological studies on M. meles, as well as certain programmes to control bovine tuberculosis, would benefit from a greater understanding of the factors that influence the probability of capturing this animal in cage-traps. The authors investigated some of the factors that could explain...

Abstract

The risk of a confirmed tuberculous herd restriction was examined using a logistic model for herds involved in the East Offaly Badger Research Project, Ireland, from 1988 to 1995. Cattle herds present in the badger-removal area had a significantly lower proportion of new confirmed tuberculous herd...
