Pasteurella multocida was isolated from the tonsillar fossa of five of twelve wild raccoons (Procyon lotor) and one of two red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) which were collected with humane wire-cage traps near turkey farms. In one raccoon, the organism was recovered from the mouth in addition to the tonsillar fossa. The fermentation pattern of these isolates was the same as that for 84% of the 214 isolates of P. multocida recovered from turkeys in Missouri veterinary medical diagnostic laboratories during the last 5 years. Although these isolates were pathogenic for turkeys, the organism was not transmitted from raccoons to turkeys.
