Abstract

During October 1969 a piece of land was fenced out of the Kruger National Park, Republic of South Africa, near Numbi Gate in the south western tip of the Park. Impenetrable diamond mesh fencing material was used. In spite of concentrated and repeated efforts to drive game from this excised bit of land, some game still remained within the area.

As this piece of land was designated for concentrated human habitational purposes and lay within the region where movements are restricted by foot-and-mouth control regulations, it was decided to shoot and use the remainder of the antelope population for research purposes. This report documents the findings on eight reedbuck Redunca arundinum which were collected in this area. Very little is known of the disease spectrum of this species in the wild state.
