Abstract

Viscera of 16 moose and hide samples of 24 moose (Alces alces) shot in eastern Ontario in 1985 were examined for parasites. Two species of trematodes, one species of cestode, five species of nematodes and one species of tick were recovered. One nematode species, Trichuris discolor, is reported for the first time from moose. Our results suggest that the parasite fauna of the moose may have been influenced by the absence or scarcity of other species of wild cervids or carnivores and by the presence of domestic livestock.
