Badgers (Meles meles), cattle and bovine tuberculosis (Mycobacterium bovis): a hypothesis to explain the influence of habitat on the risk of disease transmission in southwest England

Badgers (Meles meles), cattle and bovine tuberculosis (Mycobacterium bovis): a hypothesis to explain the influence of habitat on the risk of disease transmission in southwest England

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.
