New disease in wild turkeys
« on: May 06, 2012, 07:57:03 AM »

From a recent NY DEC fieldnotes email is the following. the photos in the  "Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study Briefs" PDF of the diseased turkey in the article look pretty bad.

DEC needs your help in identifying whether an emerging disease called Lymphoproliferative Disease Virus (LPDV) is present in New York State's wild turkeys. Skin lesions sometimes caused by LPDV resemble those caused by avian pox, another viral disease that has frequently been recorded in wild turkeys in New York. Because of the similarity in lesions, we are concerned that the presence of LPDV may be overlooked or dismissed as avian pox. DEC's Wildlife Health Unit would like to obtain samples of birds you harvest or encounter with these lesions. For instructions on how to provide a sample, please contact your regional DEC office or e-mail us at DEC advises against eating any wild animals that appear sick. You can read more about LPDV in turkeys in the January issue of the Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study Briefs (PDF) and more about avian pox in the National Wild Turkey Federation

Wow, you're right, Zos, that pic is terrible looking!    Always good to look for any abnormalities on anything you plan to ingest.     Lots of diseases and viruses out there that I don't want any part of.
They're ALL's just that some are bigger than others!
