anthrax in the mackenzie wood bison (bison bison athabascae) population: 2012 anthrax outbreak and historical exposure in nonoutbreak years.anthrax, caused by the spore-forming bacterium bacillus anthracis, poses a threat to wood bison (bison bison athabascae) conservation. we used descriptive epidemiology to characterize a large outbreak of anthrax in the mackenzie bison population in the northwest territories, canada, in 2012 and investigated historical serologic exposure of the bison to the bacterium in nonoutbreak years. between late june and early august 2012, 451 bison carcasses were detected; mortality peaked from 13-19 july. ...201728767322
descriptive epidemiology of detected anthrax outbreaks in wild wood bison (bison bison athabascae) in northern canada, 1962-2008.we inventoried and assessed historical anthrax outbreak data from 1962-2008 in wild wood bison (bison bison athabascae) in wood buffalo national park and the slave river lowlands (srl), northwest territories, canada. we compared these results with a 2010 outbreak in the srl. anthrax outbreaks have occurred in 12 of the years between 1962 and 2008 in wild wood bison with 1,515 anthrax deaths detected. the average number of carcasses found each outbreak year was 126 (range 1-363), though local ave ...201424779457

emergency response planning for anthrax outbreaks in bison herds of northern canada: a balance between policy and science.anthrax outbreaks in northern canada have implications for ongoing recovery efforts for the threatened wood bison and may pose a health risk to humans, other wildlife, and domestic livestock. rwed and wbnp maintain anthrax emergency response plans (aerps) for their respective jurisdictions. an aerp is a pre-planned logistical framework for responding effectively and rapidly to an outbreak so as to minimize spread of the disease, reduce environmental load of spores available for future outbreaks, ...200212381599
a review of anthrax in canada and implications for research on the disease in northern bison.during the first half of the century, the majority of anthrax outbreaks in canada occurred in the southern portions of ontario and quebec and were often associated with pastures contaminated by effluent from textile industries dealing with imported animal materials. in 1952, introduction of federal regulations requiring disinfection of these materials greatly reduced the incidence of anthrax in eastern canada. since 1962, domestic outbreaks of the disease have been reported almost exclusively in ...199910475950
investigation, control and epizootiology of anthrax in a geographically isolated, free-roaming bison population in northern canada.in july 1993 anthrax caused significant mortality in an isolated, free-ranging population of bison (bos bison athabascae) west of great slave lake in the northwest territories. there was no previous record of anthrax in this area. an emergency response was undertaken to reduce the scale of environmental contamination and dissemination of anthrax spores and hence to reduce the likelihood of future outbreaks. one-hundred-and-seventy-two bison, 3 moose (alces alces), and 3 black bear (ursus america ...19958548686
