Also a predator such as a bobcat has limited interaction with other of its species ( I guess it could eat a rabid raccoon). And if it is a question of over population, how do the invasives that we battle not succumb to a scourge ( I talking about you buckthorn and spotted knapweed)?
We were talking about the spread of viruses in mammals.
Not plants.
