just a question, how does TB in Kruger develop, does it reducing itself, stagnation or what?


This was the question I answered Malealea - 'how does it develop?' Sorry if I misunderstood. :redface: :)

Does TB is still a Problem or not?


Yes it is still a problem and there is a great deal of research being done on it. I personally have not seem as many TB-affected lions as I have in the past, but we do come across them every now and then.

Well I think you missunderstood me...

What you explained draws a line where the sickness came from but you did not tell me about the development. My understanding of the word development as is follows. Meaning in that case how the infaction rate of Lions change. Does we have a lower amount of infected Lions, Does the amount Increase or stagnate?

Best Regards

I'm sorry I dont know enough to answer that question Malealea, and I'm not sure that the answer is yet known. If you have a look here:

http://krugerparktimes.blogspot.com/

you will see an article concerning a Lion Bovine Tuberculosis Disease Risk Assessment Workshop held in 2009 which will give you some idea of the problems being faced and the work being done. if you want to look at the proceedings of the workshop, look here:
