African Buffalo Movement And Zoonotic Disease Risk Across Transfrontier Conservation Areas, Southern Africa
Rift Valley Fever
Transfrontier Conservation Areas
Tuberculosis And Other Mycobacteria
Pubmed Central ID:PMC4734510
Description:We report on the long-distance movements of subadult female buffalo within a Transfrontier Conservation Area in Africa. Our observations confirm that bovine tuberculosis and other diseases can spread between buffalo populations across national parks, community land, and countries, thus posing a risk to animal and human health in surrounding wildlife areas.
