Abstract

The gross and histological appearance of the lesions of tuberculosis in 36 wild badgers found to be infected with Mycobacterium bovis are described. These badgers were examined over a period of two years during an investigation into the possible epidemiological association of tuberculosis in ...

Abstract

After outbreaks of TB in cattle, 136 badgers, representing 24 social groups, were removed for PM examination. Mean group size varied little (4.8-7.6 individuals) but mean territory size varied greatly (22-75 ha). The prevalence of TB ranged from 6.9% to 34.5%.

Abstract

Complete attestation was declared in Great Britain in 1960 but the reactor rate remained significantly higher in areas of south-west England. A possible wildlife reservoir of infection was investigated after the identification of infected badgers in these areas. From 1971 to 1978, 5700 wild mammals ...

Abstract

As a background to the controversial issue of eradicating badgers, at least in areas of Britain where there is a high population density and large numbers of cattle, studies were carried out on the fertility, survival rate of cubs, age of adults, population growth and density, and dispersion of ...

Abstract

Twenty-five badgers, captured in an area where they had been implicated in outbreaks of bovine tuberculosis, received intradermal inoculations of control medium, 150 µg phytohaemagglutinin (PHA), 40 units streptokinase/10 units streptodornase (SK/SD), 200 µg purified protein derivative of ...

Abstract

The intradermal inoculation of 4 badgers with small numbers of Mycobacterium bovis resulted in localized lesions with ulceration which healed slowly during 5 months after inoculation. Lesions of generalized tuberculosis were seen in one badger which died 17 months after inoculation and in two...

Abstract

Four groups of 2 badgers were inoculated with 0.01 mg (104 bacilli) or 0.001 mg (103) of bovine tubercle bacilli by intradermal (i/d) or intratracheal (i/t) routes. Blood samples, collected monthly, were examined by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay and lymphocyte transformation test. Skin tests...

Abstract

Environmental contamination by infected badger urine is thought to be the main mode of transmission of tuberculosis from badgers to cattle. Despite the introduction of badger control measures in 1975, many cattle in the southwest of England fail the tuberculin test. Areas subject to repeated badger ...

Abstract

The weight, length, area, length of perimeter and minimum diameter of the baculum [os penis] was determined in 23 tuberculosis-positive and 64 tuberculosis-negative male badgers obtained during 1989-90, either as road casualties or killed under licence. There were considerable changes in baculum...
