Abstract: We investigated the seroprevalence of antibodies against Erysipelothrix in wild animals in Japan. Serum samples were collected from 48 wild boar, 26 Yezo deer and 26 Japanese deer in Japan. Growth agglutination (GA) test was performed to estimate antibody titers. As a result, positive results were obtained from 32 (66.7%), 1 (3.6%) and 6 (23.1%) samples from wild boar, Yezo deer and Japanese deer, respectively. Our findings suggest that wild animals may be an important reservoir of Erysipelothrix.
