Signs Observed Among Animal Species Infected with Raccoon Rabies Variant Virus, Massachusetts, USA, 1992–2010
| Contributor(s):: Xingtai Wang, Barbara G. Werner, Sandra Smole, Vasil Pani, Linda L. Han
We analyzed signs occurring among domestic and wild terrestrial animal species infected with raccoon rabies variant virus (RRV) in Massachusetts, 1992–2010. The clinical sign of aggression was significantly associated with rabid stray cats (odds ratio, OR = 2.3) and RRV affected major wild...
Home range, body condition, and survival of rehabilitated raccoons ( Procyon lotor) during their first winter
| Contributor(s):: McWilliams, M., Wilson, J. A.
The effects of raccoon ( Procyon lotor) rehabilitation on postrelease survivorship are unknown. Raccoon rehabilitation success was measured as differences in prewinter body condition, home range size, distance to manmade structures, and during-winter survival between raccoons in the wild and...

The role of bait manipulation in the delivery of oral rabies vaccine to skunks
| Contributor(s):: Stacie J. Robinson, Susan M. Jojola, Kurt C. VerCauteren
The majority of rabies cases reported to the Centers for Disease Control each year occur in wildlife including skunks, raccoons, bats, foxes, and coyotes. Currently, oral rabies vaccination campaigns are employed to immunize coyotes, foxes, and raccoons. Though skunks are vectors of 6 rabies...
Monitoring raccoon rabies in Alabama: the potential effects of habitat and demographics
| Contributor(s):: Wendy Arjo, Christine Fisher, James Armstrong, Dana Johnson, Frank Boyd
Density, morphometrics, and disease prevalence of raccoon populations were determined in 4 habitats (agriculture, riverine, managed, and forested) in central Alabama. In addition we monitored 71 collared raccoons to determine survival. Density estimates were similar in the agriculture (ag) and...

Animal-based national surveillance for zoonotic disease: quality, limitations, and implications of a model system for monitoring rabies
| Contributor(s):: Childs, J. E., Krebs, J. W., Real, L. A., Gordon, E. R.
Surveillance for zoonotic diseases among wildlife is a research and public health challenge. The inherent limitations posed by the requisite human-animal interactions are often undefined and underappreciated. The national surveillance system for animal rabies in the United States was examined as...
