|Abstract||Skeletal and cardiac muscle from wild geese dead of avian cholera was examined and sarcocysts were found in skeletal muscle of 42 of 88 Lesser Snow Geese, Anser caerulescens caerulescens, 1 of 7 Ross Geese, Anser rossi, and 1 of 3 Canada Geese, Branta canadensis, collected during April and May in central Saskatchewan. Two types of microcysts were present in skeletal muscle; one type had finger-like protrusions on the primary cyst wall; the other had a relatively smooth primary cyst wall. Both types were found in one Lesser Snow Goose. Microscopic cysts were found in the heart of 8 of 150 Lesser Snow Geese and 3 of 35 Ross Geese. All myocardial cysts had a smooth primary wall..|
