Abstract
Seventy-two head of wild game belonging to I.e. species were vaccinated with Lapinised rinderpest virus. The over-all case mortality rate was 19.4 per cent. The species with the least innate resistance proved to be Grant's gazelle (Gazella granti Brooke), bush-pig (Potamochoerus porcus L.) and warthog (Phacochoerus aethiopicus Pallas). Deaths also occurred amongst vaccinated reticulated giraffe (Giraffa reticulata de Winton), water buck (Kobus ellipsiprymnus Ogilby) and white bearded wildebeest.
