Aspects of rabies infection and control in the conservation of the African wild dog (Lycaon pictus) in the Serengeti region, Tanzania



Aspects of rabies infection and control in the conservation of the African wild dog (Lycaon pictus) in the Serengeti region, Tanzania



Onderstepoort Journal of Veterinary Research 60(4): 415-420



L. pictus is amongst the most endangered wildlife species in Africa. In 1990 rabies virus was isolated from the brain of an adult Lycaon found in the Serengeti region of Tanzania. One adult and 6 pups of the same pack feeding on the carcass showed clinical signs and rabies was suspected; within 2 days they had disappeared and are presumed to have died.
