Abstract Serological examination of 533 Mephitis mephitis between December 1974 and July 1977 showed that the prevalence of serotype pomona was 11.4% and that it was higher in southern Alberta and adjacent areas of Saskatchewan than previously reported. Prevalence of antibodies among 94 skunk near an infected dairy farm was 40%, considerably higher than in the 438 skunk from elsewhere 5.7%, suggesting transmission from cattle to skunk. No reactors were found among 22 skunk near the farm in summer, but 52% of 72 serum samples collected in the previous and following winters were positive. No such seasonal variation occurred in other areas. No antibody to L. sejroe was found in any sample..
