Abstract

Blood samples were obtained from 208 moose in La Vérendrye and Matane Reserves and in Laurentides Park, Quebec, Canada. Sera were tested for antibodies to Brucella abortus, Leptospira interrogans serovar ballum, canicola, grippotyphosa, hardjo, icterohaemorrhagiae and pomona, and Francisella tularensis. Fifteen sera contained evidence of prior exposure to F. tularensis. Only one animal was a seroreactor to L. interrogans serovar grippotyphosa and none of them had antibodies to B. abortus.
