Abstract

The occurrence of Mycobacterium bovis infection in cattle herds during the period 1966-92 in two geographically related areas in South-West England is compared. In one area comprising of 104 km2 all badgers were systematically killed from 1975 to 1981, after which recolonization was allowed; in the ...

Abstract

This paper presents the results of the first formal epidemiological study in Northern Ireland of risk factors for bovine tuberculosis (TB) associated with farm boundaries, neighbours and wildlife. The study was designed as a case-control study and 427 dairy herds were investigated between December...

Abstract

The course of tuberculosis in a naturally infected badger population, its impact on the population and the risk of spread to other species in the light of capture data and post-mortem findings from 47 tuberculous badgers, stratified by age group and sex, accrued since 1975 was investigated. The...

Abstract

Two experiments with badgers infected with M. bovis are described. In the first, badgers were infected by i/v inoculation of a bovine isolate of M. bovis. The course of the disease in these and its spread to healthy badgers and calves was monitored by clinical, immunological and bacteriological...

Abstract

Following epidemiological and ecological studies of a defined badger population in an area of East Sussex, removal of all badgers by cage trapping was attempted. Trapping was incomplete due to the activities of protesters. 47 badgers were caught from the 8 social groups. All badgers were examined...

Abstract

Between 1972 and 1987, 588 (3.9%) of 15 064 badgers examined in Great Britain were infected with Mycobacterium bovis. Infected badgers were detected in 16 of the 61 counties, mainly in the south and west of the mainland. The current information on the effect of M. bovis infection on badger...

Abstract

Following a major outbreak of tuberculosis in cattle on a farm in Dorset, badgers were discovered to be infected with Mycobacterium bovis. 240 sets were found in the 1200 hectares of the study area, predominantly in areas of Portland sand. A high prevalence of tuberculosis was found in the badger...

Abstract

Following the detection of Mycobacterium bovis infection in badgers in East Sussex in 1976, badgers have been examined from and around farms on which cattle have become infected, but with no other attributable source of infection. These farms are confined to the downland of the south-west of the...

Abstract

The dynamics of bovine tuberculosis infection in a wild badger population have been studied since 1981. Faeces are sampled regularly to determine the distribution of infection in the study area. Badgers in known infected social groups, plus the neighbouring groups, are periodically caught and...

Abstract

In 1982, Mycobacterium bovis was isolated from 8 (18%) of 45 badgers, in three of five adjacent social groups, captured in an area of Staffordshire where tuberculosis had occurred in cattle. The adult badger population density was 6.2/km2. The viscera were positive in 7 badgers, in one the urine...
