A study was undertaken on wild animals to determine the seroprevalence of animal leptospirosis in Korea. Using the serum microagglutination test for 19 serogroups, it was shown that two of 26 rats (Rattus rattus) had antibodies to Leptospira canicola. When data for domestic animals were included, the most prevalent (nearly 50%) serogroup was Leptospira canicola.
