  • ISSN : 0008-9176



Vampire bat rabies is a major problem in cattle in most of the South American countries and Mexico. The range of this bat extends from the Mexico-United States border as far south as the Estuary of the River Plate in North Argentina. In these areas the vampire bat is considered to be the most important vector of rabies, particularly in cattle, and each year it is estimated that one half to one million cattle die from rabies, with an estimated loss to cattle producers of 250 million US dollars per year.
