Wildlife Health Handbook Bi. Amina is especially interested in the dead monkeys because she heard on the local radio station Mambo FM, that several people have fallen ill around the wildlife management area with a strange disease. Two people have died. Three more people are sick with a fever, headache, vomiting, with some colored spots on their bodies. Bi. Amina has been wondering if wildlife might be associated with the strange disease. 3) What should Bi. Amina do now? Check all that apply. □□ A. Ask if the men will guide her to the area where the monkey carcasses were found. □□ B. Ask if there is any meat, hide, or waste left for sampling from the monkey that was consumed. □□ C. Call her local veterinarian, district game officer, and public health authorities to report the news. □□ D. Call Mambo FM and see if she can go on the radio and become a celebrity for identifying the cause of the outbreak. Bi. Amina calls the local veterinarian and tells him the news about the monkeys and the strange disease. Dr. Wanyama tells her he will contact the other authorities, and asks if she can work with the men to visit the location of the monkey carcasses. He explains to her the importance of protecting herself from exposure to diseases in the field and also explains some protocols to follow should she find any dead animals. He then recommends some equipment to take along from the local scout station. 4) What protective equipment and gear should Dr. Wanyama recommend for Bi. Amina to bring with her and the men to the field? Circle all that apply.
