Abstract or Summary
  • Preliminary studies with a dog (Canis familiaris) and a coyote (Canis latrans) showed that these carnivores can serve as definitive hosts in the life cycle of Sarcocystis fusiformis of cattle (Bos taurus) and a microscopic Sarcocystis of mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus hemionus). Preliminary studies to determine effects of the cervine Sarcocystis on deer were inconclusive. Further studies confirmed that coyotes were definitive hosts for this cervine Sarcocystis. Sporocysts passed from infected coyotes were used to inoculate eleven mule deer fawns, two sheep (Ovis aries) and a calf. Three fawns, two sheep and a calf were maintained as uninoculated control animals. All control animals as well as the inoculated sheep and calf remained healthy and did not develop Sarcocystis. All inoculated fawns underwent an acute infection and nine of eleven died. A new species name, Sarcocystis hemionilatrantis, was proposed for this parasite.
