Lyme Disease : Whitetail Deer

This photograph of a whitetail deer, Odocoileus virginianus, was taken during a Lyme disease field investigation in 1993. Whitetail deer are investigated during outbreaks of lyme disease, because they serve as hosts to the ticks which carry the bacteria, Borrelia burgdorferi, responsible for Lyme disease.
