Significance of young foxes for the persistence of rabies in northwestern Switzerland


, : Significance of young foxes for the persistence of rabies in northwestern Switzerland. Immunobiology of viral infections Proceedings 3rd Congress of the European Society for Veterinary Virology Interlaken, Switzerland, 4-7 September, 1994: 391-396

The current epidemic reached Switzerland in 1967 and spread over most of the country. Oral vaccination of red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) began in 1978 and the number of cases fell from a maximum of 1738 in 1976 to 25 cases in 1990. In spite of a high bait uptake rate (78% in 1992, 68% in 1993) rabies persists in the Jura Mountains, and the number of cases increased to 175 in 1993. Both the hunting bag and the number of road kills indicate a rapid growth of the fox population in recent years.
