Tuberculosis-Associated Death among Adult Wild Boars, Spain 2009–2014
New research article published in Emerging Infectious Diseases journal.
We investigated adult Eurasian wild boar (Sus scrofa) survival and death in 2 tuberculosis-endemic populations with different harvest pressure in Spain. Overall, tuberculosis accounted for 30% of total deaths. Increased survival in protected areas has direct implications for wild boar management and tuberculosis control.
