Erwinia-like microorganisms were isolated from the vital organs of more than 40% of a large deer population examined as well as from 13% of a small random sampling. Over a brief period of observation, a similar isolate was recovered from throat cultures of two children and one adolescent. There is no obvious explanation of the presence of the plant pathogen or its significance under these circumstances.
