Abstract

Tongue samples were collected from 51 hunter-killed black bears (Ursus americanus) in Arizona during 1978 and 1979. Trichinella sp. was detected in 3.9% of this sample. Counts of 132 and 406 trichinae indicated a potential health hazard to anyone consuming insufficiently-cooked bear meat.
