Resum

Serum samples from 101 mouflons (Ovis aries musimon) collected from July 2002 to January 2006 were tested for antibodies against Anaplasma spp., Brucella spp., bovine viral diarrhea virus, Chlamydophila abortus, Coxiella burnetii, Mycobacterium avium ssp. paratuberculosis, and Maedi-Visna virus. Mouflon came either from extensive farms or high ungulate density fenced hunting estates. Antibodies were detected against Anaplasma spp. (22.2%), C. burnetii (4.0%), M. avium ssp. paratuberculosis (1.0%) and C. abortus (1.0%). According to our results, mouflons could participate as a wild reservoir in the epidemiology of Anaplasma spp. infection and maybe Q fever, but they do not seem to contribute in the epidemiology of the rest of the studied infectious diseases in south-central Spain. © 2008 Springer-Verlag.
