Summary of "Conservation of White Rhinoceroses Threatened by Bovine Tuberculosis, South Africa, 2016-2017."

During 2016-2017, when Kruger National Park, South Africa, was under quarantine to limit bovine tuberculosis spread, we examined 35 white and 5 black rhinoceroses for infection. We found 6 infected white rhinoceroses during times of nutritional stress. Further research on Mycobacterium bovis pathogenesis in white rhinoceroses is needed.
