Lutter contre les zoonoses, vendre des produits d'origine animale et protéger des animaux sauvages : trois systèmes sociotechniques à l'épreuve de la brucellose des bouquetins du Bargy

Abstract : Control measures, including a massive culling of ibex, were implemented following the discovery of enzootic brucellosis in the ibex population in the Bargy range in 2012 (Haute-Savoie, France). They triggered strong reactions, stemming for different reasons from farming professionals and from nature conservationists. Studying these reactions helps grasp how the Bargy ibex brucellosis is reconfiguring several sociotechnical systems: the system aiming to eradicate brucellosis in the ibex population itself but also two older systems that were assembled separately but that brucellosis has suddenly connected. One aims to produce raw-milk cheese on a large scale and the other to conserve endangered species such as ibex. Partially diverging conceptions of health were developed in each of them but their solutions to maintain and improve health - total protection vs total eradication of sick and exposed individuals - turn out to be equally impossible in the case of the Bargy ibex brucellosis. .../.. .../.. This episode therefore leads to redefine the animals' characteristics that matter in their conservation, by adding genetic and immunocompetence criteria to classical demographical criteria. It also leads to reflect on think about the conditions under which humans and animals can live with pathogens.
