Wild animals can serve as hosts, amplifiers or reservoirs for various zoonotic diseases. Most species of deer in highly fragmented agricultural landscapes, search out maximum cover from intrusive human activity. Hence, the likelihood of zoonosis transmission is likely to increase the more humans and wildlife interact. In our study, we conducted a comparative analysis of bacteria isolated from the faeces of red deer (Cervus elaphus) living in their natural environment in south‐western Poland and… 
Free-Living Species of Carnivorous Mammals in Poland: Red Fox, Beech Marten, and Raccoon as a Potential Reservoir of Salmonella, Yersinia, Listeria spp. and Coagulase-Positive Staphylococcus
TLDR
The results of the study showed that free-living animals may be a significant reservoir of bacteria that are potentially pathogenic for humans and other animal species, and that the red fox constitutes the most important source of infections.
Antimicrobial Resistance in Escherichia coli Isolated from Wild Animals in Poland.
TLDR
Antimicrobial resistance was tested in Escherichia coli isolated from feces of red deer, roe deer, fallow deer, European bison, and wild boar shot in regional forests in Poland during two winter hunting seasons, finding no significant differences between boar and ruminant isolates.
Temporal Trends in Antimicrobial Resistance of Fecal Escherichia coli from Deer
TLDR
The results show commensal E. coli from WTD had significant linear increases in reduced susceptibility to 5 of 12 antimicrobials, including broad-spectrum cephalosporins and fluoroquinolones, from 2006 to 2016.
Staphylococcus aureus Epidemiology in Wildlife: A Systematic Review
TLDR
A number of molecular types were identified that were likely to be found in wildlife species, including those that are commonly found in humans or other animal species (including livestock).
Concentrations of Campylobacter spp., Escherichia coli, Enterococci, and Yersinia spp. in the Feces of Farmed Red Deer in New Zealand.
TLDR
This study is the first to quantify the concentration of spp.
Antimicrobial activity of some plant extracts against bacterial pathogens isolated from faeces of red deer (Cervus elaphus).
TLDR
This study confirms that many plant extracts shows in vitro antibacterial activity, and tests the antimicrobial activity of nine extracts from different plants against pathogenic bacteria isolated from the faeces of red deer.
Game animals as a reservoir of rarely recorded opportunistic bacteria
TLDR
In Poland, the population of game animals, including wild boars, roe and deer, is constantly increasing and the tonsils of wild game animals are a place of large variety of microorganisms, such as E. coli, Y. enterocolitica and Salmonella sp.
Listeria monocytogenes at the human–wildlife interface: black bears (Ursus americanus) as potential vehicles for Listeria
TLDR
The results suggest that the ursine host may preferentially select for L. monocytogenes of clinically relevant lineages over the diverse listerial populations in the environment, and highlight the public health significance of the human–wildlife interface.
Impact of winter enclosures on the gut bacterial microbiota of red deer in the Bavarian Forest National Park
TLDR
High-throughput sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene in fecal samples of red deer inhabiting the Bavarian Forest National Park is used to investigate differences in the gut bacterial microbiota between individuals in winter enclosures and individuals that ranged freely in the forests in winter.

Bioserotypes and virulence markers of Y. enterocolitica strains isolated from roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) and red deer (Cervus elaphus).
TLDR
The Y enterocolitica strains isolated from wild ruminants had the amplicons of the ystB gene, what suggest they can be potential source of Y entericolitica infection for humans.
Campylobacter spp., Salmonella spp., Verocytotoxic Escherichia coli, and Antibiotic Resistance in Indicator Organisms in Wild Cervids
TLDR
The results indicate that the cervid species studied do not constitute an important infectious reservoir for either the human pathogens or the antibiotic resistant microorganisms included in the study.
Shedding of foodborne pathogens and microbial carcass contamination of hunted wild ruminants.
Experimental and Field Studies ofEscherichia coli O157:H7 in White-Tailed Deer
TLDR
The low overall prevalence of E. coli O157:H7 and the identification of only one site with positive deer suggest that wild deer are not a major reservoir of the bacterium in the southeastern United States, however, there may be individual locations where deer sporadically harbor the bacteria, and venison should be handled with the same precautions recommended for beef, pork, and poultry.
Occurrence of Escherichia coli O157:H7 and other enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli in the environment.
TLDR
The presence of infectious stx-phages isolated as free particles in the environment and their high persistence in water systems suggest that they may contribute to the spread of stx genes, as they are directly involved in the emergence of new pathogenic strains, which might have important health consequences.
Carriage of Staphylococcus aureus by Free-Living Wild Animals in Spain
TLDR
The presence of methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus was analyzed in different free-living wild animals to assess the genetic diversity and predominant genotypes on each animal species, and MSSA isolates were different from those MRSA isolate previously detected in the same animal species.
Pheno-genotypic characterisation of Escherichia coli O157:H7 isolates from domestic and wild ruminants.
Adhesion of Human and Animal Escherichia coli Strains in Association with Their Virulence-Associated Genes and Phylogenetic Origins
TLDR
New screening methods were established which enabled us to characterize large numbers of E. coli isolates originating in humans, domestic pigs, and 17 wild mammal and avian species and identified a very broad range of colonization strategies and defined potential new adhesion genes.
Incidence of Listeria monocytogenes in nature.
TLDR
It is suggested that Listeria monocytogenes is a saprophytic organism which lives in a plant-soil environment and therefore can be contracted by humans and animals via many possible routes from many sources.
Seropathotypes, Phylogroups, Stx Subtypes, and Intimin Types of Wildlife-Carried, Shiga Toxin-Producing Escherichia coli Strains with the Same Characteristics as Human-Pathogenic Isolates
TLDR
Roe deer, wild boar, and fox in Galicia are confirmed to be carriers of STEC strains potentially pathogenic for humans and seem to play an important role in the maintenance of ST EC.
