These investigators have previously reported that grouse are susceptible to experimental tularemia. Inoculation of an abrasion through the skin of a ruffed grouse results in a fatal septicemia. Preliminary experiments carried out on the susceptibility of the Hungarian partridge to experimental tularemia indicate that this bird is highly susceptible to the disease, a fatal infection resulting from an open inoculation of a skin abrasion. The pigeon appears to be relatively more resistant. In this bird an intramuscular injection causes the formation of a local lesion, and in some cases is followed by a generalized invasion by the organism. Even with
