Abstract

Between 1986 and 1991, sera were collected from 33 roe deer (Capreolus capreolus), 24 red deer (Cervus elaphus), four fallow deer (Dama dama), two mouflon (Ovis musimon), 34 wild boars (Sus scrofa), and 48 hares (Lepus europaeus) shot in two areas of the Czech Republic. Collectively, the sera contained antibodies to Coxiella burnetii (prevalence of 12%), Francisella tularensis (4%), Brucella spp. (2%), Central European tick-borne encephalitis virus (8%), Ťahyňa (California serogroup) virus (36%), and Čalovo (=Batai) virus (23%). We propose that these mammals may play a role in maintaining natural foci of Q-fever, Ťahyňa fever and Čalovo virus infection.
