Abstract

Three packs of Lycaon pictus ranging to the north of the Masai Mara National Reserve in SW Kenya were monitored from 1988-1990. During the period 2 August-14 September 1989, 21 of 23 members of one of these packs died. Histological examination of two brain samples revealed eosinophilic intracytoplasmic inclusions (Negri bodies), supporting a diagnosis of rabies viral encephalitis. Infection was with a viral variant common among domestic dogs in Kenya and Tanzania. A hypothesis linking African wild dog rabies deaths to researcher handling is considered implausible. -from Authors
