Abstract

Mycobacterium bovis infection was first described in free-ranging wildlife in France in 2001, with subsequent detection in hunter-harvested ungulates and badgers in areas where outbreaks of bovine tuberculosis (TB) were also detected in cattle. Increasing concerns regarding TB in wildlife led the...

Abstract

A survey to determine the prevalence of Mycobacterium bovis in wild mammals in Portugal was conducted by testing samples from hunted animals and those found dead between 2009 and 2013. In this study, we investigated 2116 wild mammals. Post-mortem examinations were performed, and tissues were...

Abstract

Mycobacterium bovis can be transmitted to various wild populations, and some of them are able to maintain or to spillback the infection to cattle, thus hampering control strategies. Our objective was to investigate the role of the different wild populations involved in the M. bovis multi-host...

Abstract

Interactions among wildlife species are major drivers for the transmission of multi-host pathogens, such as Mycobacterium bovis, which also affect livestock. Although France is officially free from bovine tuberculosis (bTB), some areas are still harboring infection in cattle and wildlife. We aimed...

Abstract

Interactions among wildlife are likely to play a role in the transmission of diseases caused by multi-host pathogens such as Mycobacterium bovis, the agent of bovine tuberculosis. Although France is officially free from bovine tuberculosis, some areas are still harboring infection in cattle and...

Abstract

Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is a common disease of cattle and wildlife, with economic repercussions and implications for animal and human health. The surveillance of bTB in wildlife is particularly important, to shed light on the epidemiological role of wild species and for the adaptation of control...

Abstract

Control of livestock diseases can become complicated when wild animals are involved. The Eurasian badger (Meles meles) is considered the principle wildlife host of Mycobacterium bovis (which causes bovine tuberculosis, bTB) in Great Britain and Ireland, but wild deer have also been implicated....

Abstract

Wild deer populations in Great Britain are expanding in range and probably in numbers, and relatively high prevalence of bovine tuberculosis (bTB, caused by infection with Mycobacterium bovis) in deer occurs locally in parts of southwest England. To evaluate the M. bovis exposure risk posed to...

Abstract

When bovine tuberculosis (bTB) circulates in a multi-host system, it is paramount to characterize the interactions between wildlife and livestock as they may lead to interspecific transmission. To that purpose, we undertook a 1-year survey in 25 farms located in an infected area in the Burgundy...

Abstract

An overview of Sylvatub, a national monitoring tool for bovine tuberculosis in non-captive wildlife in France, is given. This article presents the results obtained during the first two years of operation of Sylvatub (hunting seasons 2011-12 and 2012-13 for the big game animals and the 2012 and 2013 ...
