Trichinella spiralis in wild animals, cats, mice, rats and farmed fur animals in Finland

Nordisk Veterinaermedicin 37(4): 234-242

Trichinella spiralis in wild animals, cats, mice, rats and farmed fur animals in Finland

A total of 1,399 samples of wild animals, cats, mice, rats and fur animals were examined for Trichinella larvae during the period 1.1. 1982-30.6 1984. Samples were obtained both from the problem area, were Trichinella larvae had been found in pigs, and for comparison from the rest of Finland. The frequency of the infection in wild carnivores, badgers, pine martens, raccoon, dogs, foxes and wild mink was significantly higher in the problem area than in the rest of Finland.
