Abstract

Mycoplasma sp. and Pasteurella pseudotuberculosis were isolated in large numbers from joint fluid and blood in a 4-week-old barn owl (Tyto alba) which developed soft tissue swellings caused by trauma of talon implants from sibling owls. The wounds resulted in osteomyelitis of several long bones. The bird died three days after clinical signs were detected.
