Botulism in pheasant chicks.



Botulism in pheasant chicks.



Nord. VetMed 6: 866-872



In June 1954 an outbreak of type C botulism occurred on a pheasant breeding farm in South Sweden. Of 328 chicks 218 succumbed. The toxin-containing food constituent proved to be larvae of flies (Calliphora and Lucilia) which had been bred in carcasses of wild rabbits. The authors demonstrated that although the titre of botulinus toxin, was relatively low in the larvae before they were ingested, it increased considerably in the crops of the birds.
