Abstract

Gastrointestinal helminths including two species of cestodes (Taenia omissa and T. ovis krabbei) and three species of nematodes (Toxocara cati, Cylicospirura subequalis and Ollulanus tricuspis) are reported from two free-ranging cougars (Felis concolor) in Washington (USA). Ollulanus tricuspis is reported for the first time from cougars and represents the first occurrence of this parasite in a sylvatic felid from North America.
