Tuberculosis: Will it infect wild elk?

Tuberculosis! Just the name conjures up images of a devastating, chronic, debilitating disease. And so it is in both humans and animals. Tuberculosis (TB) is not known to be present to any significant degree in the free-ranging elk herds of North America. But increasing reports of TB in deer species-including elk-on game ranches prompt grave...

Was disease involved in the decimation of Guam's avifauna?

Between 1982 and 1986, 402 (290 live, 112 dead) exotic, migrant or native resident birds on Guam were surveyed for disease-causing agents to determine the role of disease in the decline of native forest bird populations on Guam. Traumatic injury, primarily from collisions with motor vehicles and predation, was the most prevalent (46%) cause of...

Lead exposure in Canada geese of the eastern prairie population

We monitored lead exposure in Eastern Prairie Population Canada geese during summer-winter, 1986-1987 and 1987-1988 at 5 areas. Blood lead concentrations in geese trapped during summer at Cape Churchill Manitoba were below levels indicative of recent lead exposure (0.18 ppm). Geese exposed to lead (≥0.18 ppm blood lead) increased to 7.6% at Oak...

Effects of resighting errors on capture-resight estimates for neck-banded Canada geese

Biologists who study neck-banded Canada Geese (Branta canadensis) have used capture and resighting histories to estimate annual resighting rates, survival rates and the number of marked birds in the population. Resighting errors were associated with 9.4% (n = 155) of the birds from a sample of Canada Geese neckbanded in the Mississippi flyway,...

Brain acetycholinesterase activity in botulism-intoxicated mallards

Brain acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity in captive-reared mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) that died of botulism was compared with euthanized controls. AChE levels for both groups were within the range reported for normal mallards, and there was no significant difference in mean AChE activity between birds that ingested botulism toxin and died and...

Capture myopathy in an endangered sandhill crane (Grus canadensis pulla)

Despite precautions to protect cranes, a 3-year-old endangered Mississippi sandhill crane (Grus canadensis pulla) was found caught in a leghold trap in Gautier, Mississippi, on 11 November 1987. The bird could have been in the trap for up to 16 hr and was standing and struggling to escape when it was discovered. Serum chemistries of the crane on...
