Abstract

A large abdominal mass containing numerous cysticerci identified as those of Taenia crassiceps (=Cysticercus longicollis) was found in the pelvic region of the abdominal cavity of a severely constipated and emaciated red fox (Vulpes vulpes) in Prince Edward Island, Canada. Cysticercosis has not previously been reported in a wild canid in North America.
