Lesions suggestive of Avian Pox were found on a debilitated Canada goose (Branta canadensis). These were demonstrated histologically to be characteristic poxvirus lesions and poxvirus particles were seen using electron microscopy. The virus was successfully transmitted to domestic geese but not to leghorn chickens or to domestic ducks.
