ABSTRACT: A large number of ruminants are often lost in Niger due to poisoning caused by Pergularia tomentosa L. This plant traditionally used to tan skin was experienced in goats. The symptoms observed, the post-mortem findings and the search for toxic compounds suggest that P. tomentosa contains tannins. In addition, this plant most likely also includes substances with cardiac effects.
