Three diagnostic techniques (1) microscopic examination for Negri bodies, (2) mouse inoculation and (3) fluorescent antibody tagging were compared as to their ability to detect rabies virus in 14 experimentally infected striped skunks (Mephitis mephitis) exposed to normal summer weather conditions after death. The fluorescent antibody technique correctly identified rabies virus longer than either of the other methods. Rabies incidence in 61 road-killed skunks collected on the day following death in southeastern North Dakota was 26 per cent.
