An account of the longitudinal mucosal corrugations of the human tracheo-bronchial tree, with observations on those of some animals. (1/171)

A description is given of the distribution of the longitudinal mucosal corrugations in the human tracheo-bronchial tree. It has been shown that they are made up of elastic tissue in a collagen matrix, and that the elastic fibres continue into the smallest bronchioles beyond where the corrugations are no longer visible. An examination has also been made of the tracheo-bronchial trees of the hen, rat, raccoon, pig, sheep, llama and tiger. Corrugations are present in all these animals, except the hen and the raccoon, and they have been compared and contrasted with the condition in Man. The functional significance of these corrugations remains unknown, but, they could be important in equalizing tension in the tracheo-bronchial tree during inspiration, as well as in providing elastic recoil during expiration.  (+info)

Human rabies postexposure prophylaxis during a raccoon rabies epizootic in New York, 1993 and 1994. (2/171)

We describe the epidemiology of human rabies postexposure prophylaxis (PEP) in four upstate New York counties during the 1st and 2nd year of a raccoon rabies epizootic. We obtained data from records of 1,173 persons whose rabies PEP was reported to local health departments in 1993 and 1994. Mean annual PEP incidence rates were highest in rural counties, in summer, and in patients 10 to 14 and 35 to 44 years of age. PEP given after bites was primarily associated with unvaccinated dogs and cats, but most (70%) was not attributable to bites. Although pet vaccination and stray animal control, which target direct exposure, remain the cornerstones of human rabies prevention, the risk for rabies by the nonbite route (e. g., raccoon saliva on pet dogs' and cats' fur) should also be considered.  (+info)

Neuronal vacuolation in raccoons from Oregon. (3/171)

During a 2-year period (1995-1997), vacuoles were detected in neurons of 21/50 (42% prevalence) raccoons (Procyon lotor) in Oregon. Age or sex predisposition was not apparent. Twenty of these raccoons were from within a radius of 40 km of Corvallis in western Oregon. Microscopically, the vacuoles were variable in size, were in the perikarya, and were consistently present in pontine nuclei. Brain tissues were negative for rabies virus antigen by fluorescent antibody test and for the protease-resistant protein prion by immunohistochemistry. Electron microscopic examination of the brain stem of selected animals revealed accumulation of electron-dense material within neuronal perikarya. Light and electron microscopic examination indicated that the accumulated intracellular material had a high lipid content. These lesions suggest a form of neuronal storage condition. Further research is required to identify the composition of the intracellular lipid material, to elucidate the mechanism of neuronal vacuolation in raccoons, and to understand the basis for the apparent geographic restriction of this lesion.  (+info)

Using a spatial filter and a geographic information system to improve rabies surveillance data. (4/171)

The design and coordination of antirabies measures (e.g., oral vaccine and disease awareness campaigns) often depend on surveillance data. In Kentucky, health officials are concerned that the raccoon rabies epizootic that has spread throughout the east coast since the late 1970s could enter the state. The quality of surveillance data from Kentucky's 120 counties, however, may not be consistent. This article presents a geographic model that can be used with a geographic information system (GIS) to assess whether a county has a lower number of animals submitted for rabies testing than surrounding counties. This technique can be used as a first step in identifying areas needing improvement in their surveillance scheme. This model is a variant of a spatial filter that uses points within an area of analysis (usually a circle) to estimate the value of a central point. The spatial filter is an easy-to-use method of identifying point patterns, such as clusters or holes, at various geographic scales (county, intraurban), by using the traditional circle as an area of analysis or a GIS to incorporate a political shape (county boundary).  (+info)

Parasitological survey on wild carnivora in north-western Tohoku, Japan. (5/171)

In the winter of 1997-1998, we collected parasitological data from 60 wild carnivora in the north-western part of Tohoku region, Japan. These included 7 foxes (Vulpes vulpes japonica), 20 raccoon dogs (Nyctereutes procyonoides viverrinus), 29 martens (Martes melampus melampus), 3 weasels (two Mustela sibirica itatsi and one M. nivalis namiyei), and one Japanese badger (Meles meles anakuma). Roundworms (Toxocara canis in foxes and Toxocara tanuki in raccoon dogs), hookworms (Ancylostoma kusimaense and Arthrostoma miyazakiense) and Molineus sp. in the small intestine were the most prevalent in foxes and raccoon dogs. In martens, Aonchotheca putorii in the stomach, Concinnum ten in the pancreatic duct, Molineus sp. and Euryhelmis costaricensis in the small intestine were the most prevalent. Collected parasites include some new helminth species for this region or Japan; the strobilar stage of Taenia polyacantha from foxes, Pygidliopsis summa from a raccoon dog, Eucoleus aerophilus, A. putorii, and Soholiphyme baturini from martens.  (+info)

Cerebral larva migrans in a raccoon (Procyon lotor). (6/171)

During 1997, gross and histopathologic examinations were performed on an adult female raccoon (Procyon lotor) that was live-trapped in Corvallis, Oregon. Multifocal eosinophilic granulomas indicative of neural and visceral larva migrans were observed. However, within these granulomas, the presence of parasitic larva was seen only in the cerebrum. Morphologic characteristics indicated that the nematode was an ascarid larva. However, it was smaller than the larva of Baylisascaris sp. This appears to be the first documented case of cerebral larva migrans in a raccoon.  (+info)

Update: raccoon rabies epizootic--United States and Canada, 1999. (7/171)

In 1977, an outbreak of raccoon rabies was detected in an area on the West Virginia-Virginia border. Since then, the area affected by this distinct variant of rabies virus associated with raccoons has spread to Ohio in the west and New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine in the north. In addition, the once separate epizootics of rabies among raccoons in the southeastern and mid-Atlantic states converged in North Carolina. In July 1999, the raccoon rabies virus variant was reported from Ontario, Canada, on the New York border. This report describes the spread of this epizootic of raccoon rabies through mid-Atlantic and northeastern states and into Canada.  (+info)

Radiologic-pathologic findings in raccoon roundworm (Baylisascaris procyonis) encephalitis. (8/171)

A 13-month-old boy developed eosinophilic meningoencephalitis, retinitis, and a protracted encephalopathy with severe residual deficits. The initial MR examination revealed diffuse periventricular white matter disease, and follow-up images showed atrophy. Brain biopsy, serology, and epidemiologic studies lead to the diagnosis of Baylisascaris procyonis infection, a parasitic disease contracted through exposure to soil contaminated by the eggs of a common raccoon intestinal roundworm. The pathologic, epidemiologic, and imaging features of this disease are herein reviewed.  (+info)

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), Wildlife Services National Rabies Management Program has conducted cooperative oral rabies vaccination (ORV) programs since 1997. Understanding the eco-epidemiology of raccoon (Procyon lotor) variant rabies (raccoon rabies) is critical to successful management. Pine (Pinus spp.)-dominated landscapes generally support low relative raccoon densities that may inhibit rabies spread. However, confounding landscape features, such as wetlands and human development, represent potentially elevated risk corridors for rabies spread, possibly imperiling enhanced rabies surveillance and ORV planning. Raccoon habitat suitability in pine-dominated landscapes in Massachusetts, Florida, and Alabama was modeled by the maximum entropy (Maxent) procedure using raccoon presence, and landscape and environmental data. Replicated (n = 100/state) bootstrapped Maxent models based on raccoon sampling locations from 2012-2014
A raccoon latrine in King County is very likely to contain roundworm eggs that can be hazardous to human health. The adult stage of the raccoon roundworm (Baylisascaris procyonis) lives in the raccoons intestine and produces microscopic eggs that are shed in the raccoons feces. One raccoon roundworm can produce more than 100,000 eggs a day. A raccoon can pass millions of eggs in its feces everyday, depending on how many worms are in its intestines. Once deposited in the environment, the eggs develop into the infectious form in 2-4 weeks, and can survive in the soil for several years.. If these infectious eggs are inadvertently swallowed by humans, other mammals, or birds, larvae (immature stage of worms) hatch out of the eggs and move into the organs of the body. The larvae travel throughout the body and may cause serious eye disease, spinal cord or brain damage, or death. Discouraging raccoons from living around people and cleaning up raccoon latrines reduces the chance that people will get ...

Sweden is bracing for an amphibious assault by a considerable force of raccoon dogs and raccoons, poised to cross the Öresund strait which separates the country from neighbouring Denmark.. Raccoon dogs (Nyctereutes procyonoides) are native to east Asia, where their populations are actually declining, but they have made themselves right at home across Scandinavia and continental Europe. Raccoons (Procyon lotor) are native to North America.. The raccoon dog was introduced into Latvia in the 1940s, and rapidly invaded neighbouring countries, penetrating as far south as Italy.. Two breeding pairs of raccoons were released outside Kassel, Germany, in 1934, with the authorisation of Hermann Görings Reich Forestry Office, with spectacular results. The country now hosts a population of up a million, and another release from an US airbase in France in the 1960s gave the animals another vital base of operations.. Denmark has already fallen to both species, and the Swedes now fear they will make the ...

High-grade brain tumors, consistently located in the frontal lobes and olfactory tracts, were detected in 10 raccoons during March 2010-May 2012 in California and Oregon, suggesting an emerging, infectious origin. We have identified a candidate etiologic agent, dubbed raccoon polyomavirus, that was present in the tumor tissue of all affected animals but not in tissues from 20 unaffected animals. Southern blot hybridization and rolling circle amplification showed the episomal viral genome in the tumors. The multifunctional nuclear protein large T-antigen was detectable by immunohistochemical analyses in a subset of neoplastic cells. Raccoon ...
Raccoons are an important vector of rabies and other pathogens. The degree to which these pathogens can spread through a raccoon population should be closely linked to association rates between individual raccoons. Most studies of raccoon sociality have found patterns consistent with low levels of social connectivity within populations, thus the likelihood of direct pathogen transmission between raccoons is theoretically low. We used proximity detecting collars and social network metrics to calculate the degree of social connectivity in an urban raccoon population for purposes of estimating potential pathogen spread. In contrast to previous assumptions, raccoon social association networks were highly connected, and all individuals were connected to one large social network during 15 out of 18 months of study. However, these metrics may overestimate the potential for a pathogen to spread through a population, as many of the social connections were based on relatively short contact periods. To ...
Author summary Distinct variants of rabies virus are harbored by several wildlife species across North America. The variant associated with the raccoon host is especially problematic given its rapid spread throughout the eastern seaboard of the United States over the second half of the 20th century and the high population density of this species in urban habitats that raises the potential for disease spread to both companion animals and their owners. Accordingly, extensive efforts to control raccoon rabies have been undertaken at many jurisdictional levels. This study uses current methods of genome analysis to explore the origins of a raccoon rabies outbreak in and around the city of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, located close to the border with western New York state. In contrast to previous Canadian outbreaks of raccoon rabies, which were due to cross-border spread of the virus, this study demonstrates that the incursion into the Hamilton area was the result of a long-distance animal translocation from
Over the period of January 2012 to January 2014, 17 raccoons were submitted to the Animal Health Centre in Abbotsford, [British Columbia] for necropsy. 9 were juvenile, 5 were adult, and 3 were of undocumented age. The animals were free ranging and had been found either dead, injured, or weak and disoriented, by members of the public or employees of provincial agencies. Of the 17 raccoons, 12 carried patent roundworm infections (7/9 juvenile, 3/5 adults, and 2/3 of undocumented age).. The raccoon roundworm, Baylisascaris procyonis, is widespread throughout North America and commonly affects free ranging raccoons. In our 2 year review, 12/17 raccoons (71 per cent) were carrying the parasite. This agrees with other published infection rates, including those previously found in BC. This parasite has a fecal-oral life cycle. The raccoon ingests infective eggs from the environment which hatch to larvae. The larvae migrate into the intestinal wall and then emerge as adults into the intestine. Adults ...
The ultimate goal for this area of research was to identify mechanisms of raccoon dispersal and geographic barriers that may impede movement. A broad geographic range of eastern North America was researched by using raccoon samples collected through our collaborators, along with the Fur Harvesters Auction (FHA) and the North American Fur Auctions (NAFA). Using these samples genetic markers were used to create DNA profiles. The profiles were then analysed to assess population structuring and gene flow across the landscape. This analysis indicated what landscape features act as barriers to raccoon movement and were used to help direct international rabies control programs. At the time raccoon rabies had only recently been detected in the southeastern Ontario region (1999) and was unclear of how effective a barrier the St. Lawrence and Niagara rivers were to raccoon movement, potentially slowing the progression of rabies into the province of Ontario ...
Head to hindquarters, raccoons measure between 40 and 70 cm (16 and 28 in), not including the bushy tail which can measure between 20 and 40 cm (8 and 16 in), but is usually not much longer than 25 cm (10 in).[64][65][66] The shoulder height is between 23 and 30 cm (9 and 12 in).[67] The body weight of an adult raccoon varies considerably with habitat, making the raccoon one of the most variably sized mammals. It can range from 5 to 26 kilograms (10 to 60 lb), but is usually between 5 and 12 kilograms (10 and 30 lb). The smallest specimens live in southern Florida, while those near the northern limits of the raccoons range tend to be the largest (see Bergmanns rule).[68] Males are usually 15 to 20% heavier than females.[69] At the beginning of winter, a raccoon can weigh twice as much as in spring because of fat storage.[70][71][72] The largest recorded wild raccoon weighed 28.4 kg (62.6 lb) and measured 140 cm (55 in) in total length, by far the largest size recorded for a ...
UPDATE MAY 17, 2011: THE TRAPPING FOR THIS WEEK HAS BEEN CANCELLED.. A number of Beach Drive neighbors are interested in dealing with an over-population of raccoons encouraged by intentional and unintentional feeding by some neighbors. There is a flyer that is being distributed to neighbors that states if you feed them, you are responsible for their death. The flyer states that raccoons are now getting into homes, destroying our yards and our food gardens, getting into our garbage cans, KILLING our pet cats…even worse, raccoons are spreading disease, including viruses, bacteria, rabies and parasites like roundworms… The group is investigating having the raccoons trapped and killed until the population is reduced to one that nature can support before it becomes an even larger issue. Apparently trapping and relocating raccoons is not an option per Washington State law..

Mathematical models have been developed to explore the population dynamics of viral diseases among wildlife. However, assessing the predictions stemming from these models with wildlife databases adequate in size and temporal duration is uncommon. An epizootic of raccoon rabies that began in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States in the late 1970s has developed into one of the largest and most extensive in the history of wildlife rabies. We analyzed the dynamics of local epizootics at the county level by examining a database spanning more than 20 years and including 35,387 rabid raccoons. The size, number, and periodicity of rabies epizootics among raccoons were compared with predictions derived from a susceptible, exposed, infectious, and recovered model of raccoon rabies [Coyne, J., Smith, G. & McAllister, F. E. (1989) Am. J. Vet. Res. 50, 2148-2154]. After our methods for defining epizootics were applied to solutions of the model, the time series revealed recurrent epizootics in some counties,
The parasitic protist Trypanosoma cruzi is the causative agent of Chagas Disease. Chagas Disease causes greater than 15,000 deaths each year, and nearly 28 million people are believed to be at risk of infection in Central and South America. This parasite has been described in many mammalian host species and has also been described in the United States. The purpose of this study was to attempt to use PCR to amplify T. cruzi-specific DNA directly from blood samples obtained from raccoons (Procyon lotor) trapped in Warren and Barren Counties of Kentucky in 2007 and 2008. DNA was successfully isolated from 487raccoon blood samples using a Qiagen QIAmp DNA Blood Mini Kit. Each DNA sample was then subjected to PCR amplification using the T. cruzi specific primer pair known as TCZ1 and TCZ2. It was determined that T. cruzi DNA was present in 47% of raccoon blood samples with a 57% prevalence in Warren county and a 32% prevalence in Barren county. Groce (2008) estimated a similar overall prevalence of 38% in
UC DAVIS (US) - Rare brain tumors found in raccoons may be linked to a previously unidentified virus and the findings could lead to a better understanding of how viruses cause cancer in people and other animals.. Necropsies conducted since March 2010 found brain tumors in 10 raccoons from Northern California and Oregon. The common factor, found in all of the tumors, was a newly described virus, dubbed raccoon polyomavirus.. Researchers suspect this virus contributes to tumor formation. Two more raccoons with the tumor and the virus were found in Yolo and Marin counties in California since September 2012, when the article was submitted for publication.. [sources]. Polyomaviruses, which are prevalent but rarely cause cancer, do not typically cross from one species to another, so the outbreak is not expected to spread to people or other animals.. Raccoons hardly ever get tumors, says study author Patricia Pesavento, a pathologist with the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of ...
Any cost-benefit analysis of the use of an oral vaccine to control raccoon rabies should include calculating both costs and benefits in terms of $/unit area. Further, cost savings must be adjusted to match the stages of an epizootic: pre-epizootic, epizootic, and post-epizootic. A generic model, which can be adapted to different sites, illustrates the use of threshold analysis to link distribution costs, cost savings, bait density, and vaccine price. Initial results indicate the need to lower the cost of the vaccine, continue research to determine optimal bait densities, and examine distribution plans that do not require continued protection of areas in which raccoon rabies was eliminated through previous vaccination programs.
In 2009, an outbreak of raccoon rabies in Central Park in New York City, New York, USA, infected 133 raccoons. Five persons and 2 dogs were exposed but did not become infected. A trap-vaccinate-release program vaccinated ≈500 raccoons and contributed to the end of the epizootic.
On December 2, 2015, a sick raccoon in Hamilton ON had a significant altercation with two dogs. The raccoon was euthanized and tested for rabies as a precaution. Test results were received on December 4, and were positive for rabies (raccoon variant). Subsequent surveillance testing of wildlife carcasses collected by municipal animal services in the preceding weeks confirmed three additional positive raccoons with raccoon-variant rabies on December 9.

Rabies is currently enzootic in many cities of southern Ontario. The Ministry of Natural Resources is utilizing two different tactics for the control of rabies in urban wildlife rabies vectors-oral immunization with baits (foxes) and vaccination by injection following live-capture (skunks and raccoons). Between 47 and 79% of the skunks and 61 and 76% of the raccoons were captured and vaccinated (Imrab) in a 60-km2 urban area of Metropolitan Toronto during 1987, 1989. Only three cases of rabies in skunks have been reported since control began in 1987. Population increases of 120% for skunks and 40% for raccoons were noted since the rabies control program was initiated. Densities for raccoons and skunks in urban habitat were found to be as high as 56 and 36 per km2, respectively. An estimated 56% of the foxes in Metropolitan Toronto were reached with rabies vaccine baits following distribution throughout the ravine systems and at fox pup-rearing den sites. To our knowledge, this is the first documentation
Sort of odd to have this story as just last week, I was called to put down a Raccoon. The only difference is this one had climbed a utility pole sticking its face where it shouldnt have and blew the transformer fuse on a 7000 volt line. Those are loud as hell when they blow and needless to say it didnt do Mr. Raccoon any good. With the utility crew there trying to install a new fuse but a weird messed up Raccoon around their feet, they didnt know quite what to do. So, they did what any red blooded American would do embracing indecision, they smacked it with a 2 x 4.

Raccoons have lots of names and appellations. This is because theyre observed in a number of diverse areas of america, and display slightly different attributes, customs, and lifestyles. Along with this exact formal name, these creatures are also referred to as the frequent Raccoon, North American Raccoon, along with the Northern Raccoon.. Along with these colloquial titles, raccoons are also called by their own habitat and behaviors. They are exceptionally adaptable mammals which could dwell in various different climates all around the world; such as Central, South and North America, Canada, Asia, Europe, as well as the Caribbean. This number leaves room for a good deal of interesting names. The differences among every species include dimensions, weight, fur colour, diet, behaviour, and other recognizable and physiological traits.. Raccoons are nocturnal creatures, meaning theyre active at night and rest during the day. During the nighttime, raccoons normally hunt and forage for food. ...

They are exceptionally adaptable mammals which could dwell in various different climates all around the world; such as Central, South and North America, Canada, Asia, Europe, as well as the Caribbean. This number leaves room for a good deal of interesting names. The differences among every species include dimensions, weight, fur colour, diet, behaviour, and other recognizable and physiological traits.. Raccoons are nocturnal creatures, meaning theyre active at night and rest during the day. During the nighttime, raccoons normally hunt and forage for food. ...

METUCHEN - A raccoon found in the vicinity of Oak Avenue and Maple Avenue in Metuchen has tested positive for rabies, according to the Middlesex County Office of Health Services. This is the 13th rabid animal reported within Middlesex County for 2013 and the third in Metuchen.. The Animal Control Officer responded to a complaint that a pet dog killed a raccoon in the yard of a residents home. The raccoon was sent to the New Jersey Department of Health Laboratory for testing. It was reported on Thursday, Nov. 7, that the animal tested positive for rabies. No human bites or exposures have been reported to this Office.. The pet dog had a current rabies vaccination, received a booster rabies vaccination, and was placed under a 45 day observation period. The Middlesex County Office of Health Services recommended that the home owner speak to their physician if they have additional questions about their exposure. The Middlesex County Office of Health Services is distributing rabies advisory flyers and ...

Mammalian prey includes rabbits, hares, ground squirrels, raccoons (Procyon lotor), muskrats (Ondatra zibethicus), beavers (Castor canadensis), and deer fawns. Newborn, dead, sickly or already injured mammals are often targeted. However, more formidable prey such as adult raccoons and subadult beavers are sometimes attacked. In the Chesapeake Bay area, bald eagles are reportedly the main natural predators of raccoons.[80][81] Where available, seal colonies can provide much food. On Protection Island, Washington, they commonly feed on harbor seal (Phoca vitulina) afterbirths, still-borns and sickly seal pups.[82] On San Juan Island in Washington, introduced European rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus), mainly those killed by auto accidents, comprise nearly 60% of the dietary intake of eagles.[83] In landlocked areas of North America, wintering bald eagles may become habitual predators of medium-sized mammals that occur in colonies or local concentrations, such as prairie dogs (Cynomys) and ...
Recognizing if raccoons are inhabiting your area is important because of the destructive nature of these animals and also because their feces may transfer disease to humans and pets. Raccoon droppings may carry the parasitic roundworm Baylisascaris procyonis, which can cause illness or death in humans.
They carry many diseases and the most common is rabies and roundworm. Rabies if not treated within 14 days of contact becomes fatal and at that point is no longer something a vaccine can control. This can be transmitted through a bite or scratch of an infected animal. When it comes to raccoon roundworm children are usually those that are affected the most, as children tend to be on the ground, in areas where raccoon feces can be present. These two diseases alone are why it is imperative that a control service must be called as soon as animals in the attic are heard.. Rabies: Rabies is a fatal but preventable viral disease. It can spread to people and pets if they are bitten or scratched by a rabid animal. In the United States, rabies is mostly found in wild animals like bats, skunks, and foxes. However, in many other countries dogs still carry rabies. The rabies virus infects the central nervous system. If a person does not receive the appropriate medical care after a potential rabies exposure, ...

Theres usually no middle-of-the-road opinion when it comes to raccoons: People either love or hate them. A prime example of urban wildlife, the raccoon (Procyon lotor) is intelligent, dexterous and inquisitive, and seldom passes up an opportunity to investigate anything that strikes its fancy. Raccoons make a nuisance of themselves pretty quickly with their nighttime forays raiding and emptying trash cans and pet food bowls.
The abuse of antibiotics in animal husbandry imposes a serious threat to both animal health and the environment. As a replacement for antibiotics, probiotic products have been widely used in livestock farming to promote growth of animals. However, no products specifically developed for farmed raccoon dogs and foxes are commercially available at the moment. This study was conducted to investigate the effects of mixed probiotics on farmed raccoon dogs and foxes. Two feeding trials on farmed raccoon dogs and foxes were performed. A mixed probiotic preparation composed of Bifidobacterium bifidum, Clostridium butyricum, Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus licheniformis was fed to these two canine species in order to assess whether such a mixed probiotics can be an alternative to antibiotics (control group). The body weight of raccoon dogs exhibited an increasing tendency with mixed probiotics administration, while that of foxes did not. The serum antioxidant activity was evaluated, and a significantly increase of
The extraordinary heteroxenosity (ability to use many hosts in its life cycle) of Baylisascaris procyonis is of particular concern not only to wildlife biologists but also to public health professionals and medical practitioners. To understand why there is an increasing human risk for infection with B. procyonis, a discussion of the biology and behavior of raccoons is prerequisite to subsequent discussions of epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment. B. procyonis is the large ascarid parasite of raccoons. The biology, morphology, and ecology of B. procyonis are similar to those of other ascarid parasites of carnivores, such as the common canine roundworm, Toxocara canis. Humans become infected with B. procyonis just as these other hosts do and become accidental hosts following inadvertent ingestion of eggs containing infective larvae. Without question, the biggest contributing factor to the poor response to B. procyonis neural larva migrans (NLM) therapy is treatment delay
So far, the parentage testing based on STR markers in raccoon dog has not been presented in literature. Thus, the present study as first presents STR markers for parentage control in this species. Microsatellite repeat sequences are well dispersed in the genome, highly polymorphic, and have been shown to be powerful tools in genome mapping of dog [12]. They have been used for parentage testing in many species, but the application of microsatellites to parentage testing in dogs which belong to Canidae, like raccoon dog, is relatively recent. There are a few reports on microsatellite-based parentage testing [2,4,6,8,9]. The previous studies of microsatellite loci showed very high DNA sequence conservatism inside the Canidae family [3]. Taking this fact into consideration, the received results can be compared only to those in Canis familiaris, because some panels based on microsatellite markers have already been studied in the dog, but not in the raccoon dog. Fredholm and Wintero [4] performed ...
Raccoon dog parvovirus (RDPV) causes acute infectious diseases in raccoon dogs and may cause death in severe cases. The current treatment strategy relies on the extensive usage of classical inactivated vaccine which is marred by large doses, short immunization cycles and safety concerns. The present study aimed at optimization of RDPV VP2 gene, subcloning the gene into plasmid pET30a, and its subsequent transfer to Escherichia coli with trigger factor 16 for co-expression. The protein thus expressed was purified with ammonium sulfate precipitation, hydrophobic chromatography, and endotoxin extraction procedures. VLPs were examined by transmission electron microscopy, dynamic light scattering, and the efficacy of VLPs vaccine was tested in vivo. Results indicated that RDPV VP2 protein could be expressed soluble. Transmission electron microscopy and dynamic light scattering results indicated that RDPV VP2 self-assembled into VLPs.

Posted by Jeff on Oct 3, 2017 @ 6:38 am in Conservation , 0 comments , Last modified: October 2, 2017 Beginning in the late 1970s, a strain of rabies virus associated with raccoons rapidly spread along the east coast of the United States northward from Florida and southward from West Virginia. As the virus invaded new areas, there was an explosive increase in rabid raccoons, with many states reporting over 500 cases in a year. Compounding the problem, raccoon-variant rabies frequently spills over into pets, livestock and other wildlife, including some wildlife species that we traditionally consider low-risk for rabies (rabbits, deer, etc).. Before the two raccoon rabies epizootics spread into North Carolina, canine variant rabies was the major source of rabies virus infection to pets, livestock and humans. Raccoon rabies variant was first discovered in skunks at the northern border of North Carolina in Alleghany County in 1990 and then in raccoons in Gates and Pasquotank counties in 1991. On ...
[email protected] WASHINGTON, Aug. 9, 2013 -- The U.S. Department of Agricultures Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) will conduct a third U.S. field trial of a vaccine to control rabies in raccoons, skunks, and other wildlife beginning this month. The environmental assessment process leading to the expansion was approved in 2012 and 2013.. The field trial by APHIS Wildlife Services (WS) program again will distribute more than one million oral rabies vaccination (ORV) baits in Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, and West Virginia to test the safety and immune effects of the ONRAB vaccine for potential use in wildlife. The ONRAB vaccine is currently used in Canada to control rabies in raccoons, skunks and foxes. The vaccine was field tested in the United States for the first time in West Virginia during 2011, and promising results warranted expanded testing of the vaccine in five states during 2012. The 2013 proposed field trials will repeat the 2012 studies ...
Camera trapping is a standard tool in ecological research and wildlife conservation. Study designs, particularly for small-bodied or cryptic wildlife species often attempt to boost low detection probabilities by using non-random camera placement or baited cameras, which may bias data, or incorrectly estimate detection and occupancy. We investigated the ability of non-baited, multi-camera arrays to increase detection probabilities of wildlife. Study design components were evaluated for their influence on wildlife detectability by iteratively parsing an empirical dataset (1) by different sizes of camera arrays deployed (1-10 cameras), and (2) by total season length (1-365 days). Four species from our dataset that represented a range of body sizes and differing degrees of presumed detectability based on life history traits were investigated: white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus), bobcat (Lynx rufus), raccoon (Procyon lotor), and Virginia opossum (Didelphis virginiana). For all species, ...
Lexington Raccoon Removal and Animal Control from A All Animal Control. Specializing in Raccoon Removal, Control and Exclusion in Lexington South Carolina.
The distribution of latrines of the raccoon dog, Nyctereutes procyonoides, was examined from July 2006 to December 2007 in the Imperial Palace grounds, Tokyo, Japan. The raccoon dog is accustomed to defecate at fixed locations, forming holding latrines; thus the distribution of latrines is a good indicator of their abundance. The results suggest that the latrines are widely scattered in the study site, but are more dense in the Fukiage area, where an old-growth broad-leaved forest is established. The latrine sites are used more frequently from September to December, as the number of fresh feces increased in the autumnal season. To examine the seasonal food changes of the raccoon dogs, 10 pieces of feces from some latrines were collected every month and analyzed the indigestible contents in the sampled feces. The food items identified consisted of animal, plant and man-made materials, suggesting that the raccoon dogs were highly omnivorous. The animal materials found from the feces included ...
Having any pest can be a problem, but having a large pest can be harmful in many ways to your family. Raccoons are very intelligent and curious animals. They can clear your garden, cause structural damage, rummage through your garbage cans and carry many diseases. Raccoon removal services would be the best option, for any home owner with this large pest. Doing the removal yourself, can put you at risk and should be handled by a raccoon removal service expert from Platinum Wildlife Removal.. Raccoons prefer heavily wooded areas but can be found in many suburban and urban areas. They make their homes in various places such as, not limited to, barns, garages, sewers, sheds and even in your home. Attics, basements and the crawl spaces are well suited for these pests. Not only can these animals cause structural damage and other issues, but they can also carry rabies. Rabies is a life threating viral disease that causes the brain to swell. Which in turn, makes a person or animal secrete saliva from ...
It seems that raccoons are making themselves comfortable in places and at hours of the day that are making more New Yorkers uncomfortable.
Such was the case when I chose to view the undercover video of a Chinese fur farm taken by investigators of Care for the Wild, EAST International, and Swiss Animal Protection. [Warning: This video is extremely graphic and disturbing.]. For those who dont have the stomach to watch this kind of video, here is a description of the scenes. The investigation reveals that before the raccoon dogs are skinned alive, they are thrown to the ground with a forceful blow to the head and then bludgeoned with metal rods in attempt to stun the animal. More often than not, the animal’s bones are broken and they are temporarily stunned rather than dead. Many animals are still alive and struggling desperately when workers flip them onto their backs or hang them up by their legs or tails to skin them. The video shows workers on these farms cutting the skin and fur from an animals leg while the free limbs kick and writhe. When the fur is finally peeled off over the animals heads, their naked, bloody bodies ...

He was having a good stretch and a grooming session. I smiled, clever thing. The beam would be a great place to hide and it was under the roof, offering a dry spot and out of the wind too. I watched when a few minutes later the raccoon started to walk the beam, but I noticed its gait was hitched. That was because this particular raccoon had only 3 legs. He was missing a front paw. So on the way home I was scribbling away in my notebook a whole story scenario that involved this raccoon that I would use in my book. The fact that I saw it in Toronto is amazing and so perfect for my childrens story line in my second book that I was almost giggling all the way home. How could it be that this great thing, this great idea was just handed to me? Of all the things to see while in Toronto, this was exactly what I needed. Ive named the raccoon Simon and I hope his life is long and all his garbage raids are successful. Truth is indeed strange and now Ill write it into my fictional story (Im writing and ...

Animals infected with rabies act abnormally. They may act aggressive or unusually passive. Rabid animals may be active at odd times of the day such as raccoons wandering around in the middle of the day. Classic symptoms such as foaming at the mouth and drooling occur because animals lose the ability to swallow. Also, infected animals begin to move slowly and have difficulty walking. They usually die within a week of becoming sick.. Report stray or wild animals that are acting abnormally to animal control. Avoid contact with these animals. Also, avoid contact with dead animals as the virus can survive in tears, saliva and brain and nervous tissue. High risk animals include raccoons, bats, skunks, coyotes, foxes, otters, bobcats, stray dogs and stray/feral cats.. If you are bitten or scratched by a high risk animal:. ...

What would you say the main differences were between your average British street today and its equivalent of 30-40-50 years ago? Well, theres probably more traffic on the roads, thats a fair bet; and the airs perhaps a little cleaner now there arent so many chimneys pumping toxic aromas into the atmosphere; stray dogs arent as prevalent anymore and neither is that curious cream shade of the calling-card they used to leave behind for the unsuspecting Cuban heel. But to see the key change in the Great British street scene over the past half-century, simply watch any location footage from a TV drama or sitcom filmed in the 1970s, or alternately, watch any Ealing movie from the 1950s; it really is quite blatant: there are always un-chaperoned children in shot.. Scruffy ragamuffins crawling over bombsites are something of a cliché when it comes to immediate post-war British cinema, and whilst its possible directors inserted these snotty-nosed urchins in there because thats what the audience ...

Wilf Batty isnt a name from the past that provokes instant recognition. Most probably have no idea who he was or what he did. Well, he was a farmer in the Mawbanna district of Tasmania, and what he did on 13 May 1930 made his name an unenviable footnote in this planets natural history. Wilf Batty shot and killed the last known Tasmanian tiger living in the wild. Six years later, the final Tasmanian tiger in captivity, imprisoned at Hobarts Beaumaris Zoo, died neglected and forgotten. This distinctive marsupial was even captured on film prior to 7 September 1936, the day a species that had been around for an estimated 25 million years ceased to exist.. Native Aboriginal Australians seemed to have lived in relative harmony for centuries alongside the Tasmanian tiger, but the familiar tale of colonisation by Europeans gradually left the remote outpost of Tasmania as its remaining refuge. When that too began to be colonised, the farmers hoping to make a living from the land perceived this ...

Since then I have noticed a big drop the number of raccoons in Toronto and an even more drastic drop in sparrows, starlings, house finches, and other city birds. I suspect that the raccoons were spilling garbage and ripping open plastic bag and that they and the birds were feeding on the garbage ...

As the preeminent training ground for aspiring marathoners, Category 4 roadies, and personal best-seeking triathletes, Central Park will likely become ground zero for a rabies outbreak that could potentially spread throughout the city, the tri-state area, and beyond. Even in disease-free circumstances there is significant tension among these groups, and if you add an infectious disease into the mix the results will be tragic. All it takes is for one jogger to be bitten on the ankle by a rabid raccoon when he or she stops to tighten the laces on his or her Nikes. Then, the jogger will begin foaming at the mouth and proceed to bite the next Fred on a Cervelo with nine centimeters of head-tube spacers who rides too close. He in turn will pass it on to a triathlete, and so on, until the city is overrun with crazed endurance athletes and becomes like 28 Days Later, only with dorks. I dont think Im overreacting when I say our only hope at this point is to shut down and quarantine Central Park. ...

As wildlife is not viewed in terms of traditional pest control, homeowners rarely consider the health threats associated with wildlife, which are numerous. Birds often harbor diseases such as Lyme disease, West Nile virus and histoplasmosis, a respiratory disease often spread through bird droppings. Bats, raccoons and skunks are frequent carriers of rabies, which is potentially fatal if left untreated. In fact, as many as 40,000 people each year in the United States are exposed to animals that might have rabies, and must receive preventive treatments.. Wildlife populations are increasing, even in urban areas. Although these animals play a critical role in nature, they also present many public health and safety concerns, says Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs for NPMA. Homeowners should not attempt to remove an intruding critter on their own. Although appearing cute and cuddly, these pests can display erratic behavior and can bite, peck or claw if they feel threatened. Instead, ...

What Is It? Rabies is a deadly disease caused by a virus that attacks the central nervous system. All warm-blooded animals, including wild animals, dogs, cats, and humans, are susceptible to it. Once clinical signs appear, rabies is generally fatal. However, the disease is also generally preventable through vaccination.. While the disease is not common, it remains prevalent in wildlife populations-primarily raccoons, bats, foxes, and skunks-that may have contact with domestic animals. Pets are at risk of contracting the disease from wild animals and potentially transmitting it to humans.. The virus can have an incubation period lasting from days to months. Rabies is usually transmitted through contact with the saliva of an infected animal. An animals saliva becomes infective once the virus has traveled through the animals nervous system from the initial bite site to the brain and, ultimately, the salivary glands. Pets and people usually become infected through a bite wound. Once the virus ...
