Oropharyngeal bacteria, with respect to animal health classification, and viral serology of Montana bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis) and domestic (Ovis aries) near to and distant from the wildlife/domestic animal interface
Respiratory disease outbreaks attributed to pasteurellosis have lead to conflict at the wildlife/domestic interface, where domestic sheep have been hypothesized to be a reservoir of Pasteuerellaceae strains that cause disease in bighorn sheep. This dissertation compares bighorn sheep ( Ovis canadensis) and domestic sheep ( O. aries) oropharyngeal Pasteurellaceae biovariants from animals classified as diseased and healthy. It also compares bacteriology and viral serology of populations of these species near to and distant from the wildlife/domestic livestock interface. A retrospective study of ...
