Coxiella burnetii, the causative agent of Q fever, can infect a wide range of host species, but limited information on the occurrence and implications of infection in wild species exists. This study describes a natural infection in a population of dorcas gazelle (Gazella dorcas) from a Zoo. A nine year-old Saharawi dorcas gazelle (Gazella dorcas neglecta) male tested positive on ELISA and fecal PCR. Despite treatment with oxytetracycline, the animal did not clear the infection after six months, as confirmed by a PCR test on a semen sample. This is the first report of a Saharawi dorcas gazelle infection with C. burnetii, and the first time that C. burnetii was detected in semen from a zoo animal, suggesting a possible way of spread in captive wild species. This may have major implications for management of zoo populations, particularly in endangered species
