|Abstract||Fatal myopathy similar to "capture myopathy" described for African game was diagnosed in a wild white-tailed deer. Clinical signs included depression, inability to rise or stand, and myoglobinuria. Values for serum creatine phosphokinase, glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase, and blood urea nitrogen were high. The deer died 42 hours after capture. At necropsy the muscles of the limbs had a waxy, "cooked" appearance and the kidneys were brown. Microscopic findings included severe degeneration and fragmentation of skeletal muscle fibers, nephrosis, centrilobular hepatic necrosis, myocardial degeneration, and anoxic neuronal degeneration.|
