Intestinal rupture in a Mexican gray wolf (Canis lupus baileyi) in association with ingestion of a diazinon-impregnated cattle ear tag.


PMID 23307392

Abstract

A free-ranging Mexican gray wolf (Canis lupus baileyi) suffered intestinal rupture following ingestion of an insecticidal cattle ear tag. Subsequent organophosphate toxicosis as a cause of the rupture was speculated. Insecticidal ear tags could represent a poisoning risk in canids and other wildlife scavengers.
