Rabies in bat-eared foxes in South Africa.

Author information

Foot-and-Mouth Disease Laboratory, Onderstepoort, South Africa.


Rabies in bat-eared foxes was first recognized in South Africa in 1955 and is likely to have been derived from canine rabies introduced to South Africa in 1950. Since then it has become established in this species in the drier western half of the country and the south-western Cape so that rabies now occurs in bat-eared foxes adjacent to the peri-urban canine population of Cape Town. Peak incidence was recorded in the early 1980s and the incidence is seasonal with most cases occurring in winter.
