Serological reactors to Brucella melitensis were found among goats and eland in Chilanga. The only clinical evidence of disease were abortion among the goats, and circumstances did not allow for isolation of the organism in the laboratory. No gross pathological lesions were observed on post mortem examination of the goats. The public health significance relates to the ease of Br. melitensis transmission between reservoir hosts and human beings.
