Abstract

One isolate of Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis was detected in 2,212 fecal samples of wild deer assembled in overwintering sites (OwS). Neither M. bovis nor M. a. subsp. avium was found. Therefore, congregating deer in OwSs does not automatically lead to the amplification of these pathogens among animals in OWSs.
