Subject: wild mink and ADV (NE US)?
Message-ID: <>

Here is a link to an article on ADV in Raccoons, passed
on by someone on another list.
The Raccoons became infected after an outbreak on
a ranch of minks, then I think they did a study to
look into the relationship more and did infect the
raccoons as part of the study.
