A reduction of niche breadth and a change of food habits of Alpine chamois have been observed in western Alps in response to the presence of sheep grazing in the same range (La Morgia and Bassano 2009), and livestock presence seems to induce the Pyrenean chamois Rupicapra pyrenaica pyrenaica to move to lower, forested areas (Herrero et al.
We analyzed serum samples from 355 wild ruminants hunted during August 2010-May 2013; species sampled included Pyrenean chamois (Rupicapra pyrenaica), European mouflon (Ovis aries musimon), and roe deer (Capreolus capreolus).
The earliest evidence of SBV in the study area came from a seropositive Pyrenean chamois hunted on September 3, 2012; this date coincides with the estimated months when cows that delivered stillborn calves were infected.
Thus, the lower altitude habitat selection of roe deer and the housing of domestic ruminants in valley areas could explain the higher seroprevalence observed in these species compared with that in Pyrenean chamois and mouflon.
I have understood this for many years, and in those years I have taken Alpine chamois in Austria; Alpine ibex in Switzerland; Gredos and Beceite ibex, and Pyrenean chamois in Spain; kri kri ibex in Greece; and Balkan chamois in Macedonia.
Approximately 3,000 Pyrenean chamois (Rupicapra pyrenaica pyrenaica) died in northeastern Spain during 2005-2007.
In 2001 and 2002 a new pestivirus (family Flaviviridae) was associated with an outbreak of a previously unreported disease in Pyrenean chamois (R.
Seven isolates had been sequenced in an investigation of BDV shedding and detection in organs of naturally infected Pyrenean chamois.
Additional studies are needed to determine whether this infection will have a negative effect on the population dynamics of Pyrenean chamois and epidemiologic relationships between chamois and sheep with respect to infection with different BDV strains.
