Quarantine at Mokala National Park comes to an end

The South African National Parks (SANParks) has lifted the veterinary quarantine at the Mokala National Park. The quarantine was imposed after a buffalo bull, at the park, tested positive for Mycobacterium bovis and Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which causes animal and human tuberculosis respectively.

Following an investigation by SANParks and the State Veterinary Department and no further confirmation of disease, it is suspected that the initial positive results may have been as a result of sample contamination or a cross-reaction with an unidentified, non-pathogenic mycobacterium.
