Abstract

Two adult moose (Alces alces) from Colorado (USA) were naturally infected with Elaeophora schneideri. Both animals had patent infections indicating that moose may serve as definitive hosts. Gross and histological lesions were characterized by fibromuscular intimal proliferation within the carotid arteries and rete mirabile cerebri. This is the first report of Elaeophora schneideri in moose from Colorado.
