How many diseases have been detected in foxes?

It is known that foxes often transmit diseases. Now the ministry has warned of distemper detected in foxes. This disease can also be transmitted to dogs. Guy Arendt, member of the DP, asks the ministers concerned how many diseases have been detected in recent years in foxes and how to prevent the spread of these viruses.

« Dans un communiqué du 31 mars 2021, le ministère de l’Agriculture, de la Viticulture et du Développement rural informe que dans le cadre de la surveillance des maladies animales, l’Administration des services vétérinaires a détecté ces dernières semaines plusieurs cas de maladie de Carré (Staupe) sur des cadavres de renards.

Dans ce contexte j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de l’Environnement, du Climat et Développement durable et à Monsieur le Ministre de l’Agriculture, de la Viticulture et du Développement rural :

  • Combien de cas de maladie de Carré ont été détectés sur des cadavres de renards ?
  • Combien de renards ont été testés depuis 2013 dans le cadre de la surveillance des maladies animales ?
  • Quelles autres maladies ont été détectées ? Quelle est notamment l’évolution de cas de d’échinococcose constatés chez les renards ?
  • Est-ce que des cas de maladie de Carré sur des chiens ont été signalés à l’Administration des services vétérinaires ?
  • Hormis le conseil de vacciner les chiens, existe-t-il d’autres moyens pour combattre efficacement ce virus ? Est-ce qu’une réduction de la population des renards pourrait être envisagée dans le but de limiter la propagation de ce virus ? »
