Experimental infection of the raccoon (Procyon lotor), introduced into Europe, with fox rabies virus

Experimental infection of the raccoon (Procyon lotor), introduced into Europe, with fox rabies virus

Recueil de Medecine Veterinaire 165(4): 379-382

The American raccoon (Procyon lotor) is established in several European countries, notably in the north of France. To determine the sensitivity of this animal to rabies virus from European foxes, 14 raccoons captured in the Department of l'Aisne were challenged intramuscularly with different doses of a wild strain (GS7) from fox salivary gland. Eight died and the fatal dose was approximately 104 LD50 when injected intracerebrally (i.c.) into mice.
