Abstract/Summary

This paper reports the post-mortem findings in 135 wild Antarctic fur seal pups which died of natural causes. The predominant lesions were those associated with starvation, trauma to the head and hepatic rupture. In the cases of infectious disease streptococci were the commonest pathogens. Two bulls died of sepsis, one cow of enteritis and another as a result of dystokia.
