Abstract

The seroprevalence of Toxoplasma gondii was 31% (33 of 108) in European wild hogs captured in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee and North Carolina, USA, and 37% (55 of 149) in feral pigs captured in South Carolina. This study indicates the potential role of wild game in the transmission of T. gondii to humans.
