Abstract
Evidence in support of, and against, the possible maintenance and spread of east coast fever by game animals is briefly reviewed and discussed. One out of four African buffaloes infested with ticks (R. appendiculatus) known to be infected with the east coast fever parasite contracted a mild form of the disease, and recovered. Clean ticks fed on this buffalo transmitted fatal east coast fever to cattle. The other three buffalo failed to react. Thus, for the first time by experiment, it is shown that the African buffalo is sometimes susceptible to east coast fever and may be responsible for sporadic outbreaks of the disease
