ABSTRACT
The article discusses the identification of Escherichia coli harbouring extended-spectrum Î’-lactamases of the CTX-M classes in faecal isolates of buzzards (Buteo buteo). It states that all of the isolates showed a resistant phenotype to cefotaxime and/or ceftazidime. It also mentions the possibility that the feeding habits of buzzards could expose them to faecal material of farm animals or even of humans.
