PATHOGENS 10/03/21 Molecular Detection of Selected Pathogens with Zoonotic Potential in Deer Keds (Lipoptena fortisetosa) Deer keds are obligatory hematophagous ectoparasites of birds and mammals.
Cervids serve as specific hosts for these insects. However, ked infestations have been observed in non-specific hosts, including humans, companion animals, and livestock. Lipoptena fortisetosa is a weakly studied ectoparasite, but there is evidence to indicate that it continues to spread across Europe. The existing knowledge on deer keds’ impact on wildlife is superficial, and their veterinary importance is enigmatic. Lipoptena fortisetosa is a species with vectorial capacity, but potential pathogen transmission has not been assessed. ►▼ Show Figures Figure 1 This is an open access article distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution License which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited.
VIRUSES 17/08/20 Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus Isolated from Diseased Alpine Musk Deer (Moschus sifanicus) Rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) is the causative agent of rabbit hemorrhagic disease (RHD), and its infection results in mortality of 70–90% in farmed and wild rabbits.
RHDV is thought to replicate strictly in rabbits. However, there are also reports showing that gene segments from the RHDV genome or antibodies against RHDV have been detected in other animals. VIRUSES 13/07/20 Serosurveillance and Molecular Investigation of Wild Deer in Australia Reveals Seroprevalence of Pestivirus Infection. Since deer were introduced into Australia in the mid-1800s, their wild populations have increased in size and distribution, posing a potential risk to the livestock industry, through their role in pathogen transmission cycles.
In comparison to livestock, there are limited data on viral infections in all wildlife, including deer. The aim of this study was to assess blood samples from wild Australian deer for serological evidence of exposure to relevant viral livestock diseases. Blood samples collected across eastern Australia were tested by ELISA to detect antigens and antibodies against Pestivirus and antibodies against bovine herpesvirus 1.
A subset of samples was also assessed by RT-PCR for Pestivirus, Simbu serogroup, epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus and bovine ephemeral fever virus. Our findings demonstrated a very low seroprevalence (3%) for ruminant Pestivirus, and none of the other viruses tested were detected. ►▼ Show Figures Figure 1.

MICROORGANISMS 12/12/19 Transmission Network of Deer-Borne Mycobacterium bovis Infection Revealed by a WGS Approach. Bovine tuberculosis (TB) is a zoonotic disease, mainly caused by Mycobacterium bovis.
France was declared officially TB free in 2001, however, the disease persists in livestock and wildlife. Among wild animals, deer are particularly susceptible to bovine TB. Here, a whole genome sequence (WGS) analysis was performed on strains with the same genetic profile—spoligotype SB0121, Multiple Loci VNTR Analysis (MLVA) 6 4 5 3 11 2 5 7—isolated from different types of outbreaks, including from deer or cattle herds, or zoological or hunting parks where the presence of infected deer was a common trait in most of them.
The results of the phylogeny based on the SNP calling shows that two sub-clusters co-exist in France, one related to deer bred to be raised as livestock, and the other to hunting parks and zoos. ►▼ Show Figures Figure 1 Bovine tuberculosis (TB) is a zoonotic disease, mainly caused by Mycobacterium bovis. ►▼ Show Figures Figure 1.

First steps towards building a participatory surveillance network of marsh deer morbidity and mortality The participatory surveillance network was made up of researchers, field partners (veterinarians, park rangers, livestock and timber producers, and local community), and decision makers in the two largest populations of marsh deer in Argentina located in Ibera Wetlands (IW) and Lower Delta (LD).
In IW, the network included personnel from national and provincial protected areas, NGOs, and private veterinarians. In LD, the activities were integrated into the work programme and management structure of the “Marsh Deer Scientific Technical Committee” (CCP) and included samplings during live captures carried out by “Pantano Project”. The work was gradually articulated in both study areas. Training classes and workshops led to an increased knowledge and improved sampling and biosecurity skills of local partners. Mortality events.

Abstract Animal social behaviour can have important effects on the long-term dynamics of diseases.
In particular, preferential spatial relationships between individuals can lead to differences in the rates of disease spread within a population. We examined the concurrent influence of genetic relatedness, sex, age, home range overlap, time of year, and prion disease status on proximal associations of adult Rocky Mountain mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus hemionus) in a chronic wasting disease endemic area. We also quantified the temporal stability of these associations across different sex, age, and disease status classes. We used three years of high frequency telemetry data from 74 individuals to record encounters within 25 m of each other, and to calculate seasonal home range overlap measured by volume of intersection (VI).

PLOS 19/01/17 Assessing Fifty Years of General Health Surveillance of Roe Deer in Switzerland: A Retrospective Analysis of Necropsy Reports. Submitted material and performed laboratory analyses Of the 1571 cases considered for this study, nearly 80% consisted of whole carcasses (n = 1227; versus 344 cases consisting of selected organs).
Almost 50% were animals found dead (n = 767), followed by those culled due to disease signs (35%, n = 546) or hunted (3%, n = 41); in 218 cases the manner of death was not provided. Females and males were similarly represented (757 and 708, respectively) but 106 roe deer were of unknown sex. Regarding age, 60% were adults (n = 875), of which 14% (n = 123) were indicated as old individuals. Fawns represented nearly a third of the cases (n = 431) while yearlings were only 10% (n = 157) and the age was not indicated for 104 cases.
The animals were submitted from 23 out of 26 Swiss cantons and from the Principality of Liechtenstein. Fig 1.
