The last wild dogs being studied in Tanzania's Serengeti National Park have died, and some researchers point their fingers at scientists studying the animals, arguing that handling--with radio collars and darts--so stressed the dogs that they succumbed to rabies infections. Wildlife biologists vigorously dispute the scientific basis of this hypothesis in a current publication and say the charges have hampered a variety of wildlife studies.
