Sheep is the intermediate host of the protozoan parasite Sarcocystis tenella, while the dog is its definitive host. This study was conducted to determine the prevalence of natural infection with S. tenella in slaughtered Korean native goat, Capra hircus coreanae, in the Republic of Korea. H-E stained heart tissues were investigated for the presence of sarcocysts. Of the 103 goats, three (2.91%) were diagnosed as positive for S. tenella by light, electron microscopic and molecular examination.doi:10.17221/93/2015-vetmed fatcat:xsu4er4gzfdtlcvbhtg5ekq4ry
