Abstract

Siberian Roe deer which inhabits Jeju Island is unique native species. Most of all the roe deer infect a lot of ticks, which can affect its population directly and can act as a vector to spread vector-borne diseases. The purposes of this study were to identify the ticks and detect the piroplamsosis on the roe deer in Jeju island. We collected ticks and blood samples in 23 roe deer rescued and treated at the Jeju Wildlife Rescue Center. As a result, we identified the one species of ticks, Haemaphysalis longicornis in roe deer and detected the closely related to Theileria luwenshuni in all blood samples (100%) and 8 pooled ticks (34.8%). These results indicate that there may be a high prevalence particularly of T. luwenshuni infection in Jeju wild roe deer and H. longicornis is a major vector of these diseases. It suggested that Jeju roe deer may act as reservoirs for these zoonotic pathogens.

Keywords: Roe deer, Haemaphysalis longicornis, Theileria luwenshuni, Jeju.
