Anthrax in the Wild
Nat Geo travels to Africa to report on natural outbreaks of anthrax among Namibia's wild animals. This tiny organism can drop a full-grown, three-ton African elephant dead in its tracks. The disease is especially dangerous to antelope and other herbivores, but often spares lions and hyenas. And what about humans and anthrax? To understand the behavior and effects of anthrax in today's society, a leading authority on anthrax in the wild, Dr. Peter Turnbull, speaks exclusively with NG.
