Wild felids as hosts for human plague, Western United States. Emerging Infectious Diseases 15(12): 2021-2024. doi: 10.3201/eid1512.090526
Plague seroprevalence was estimated in populations of pumas and bobcats in the western United States. High levels of exposure in plague-endemic regions indicate the need to consider the ecology and pathobiology of plague in nondomestic felid hosts to better understand the role of these species in disease persistence and transmission.
