Dr. Gary Wobeser:

Tyzzer's Disease: Of Muskrats, Mice and Men

Gary Wobeser grew up on a farm west of Regina. He did a degree in Fisheries and Wildlife Management then studied the long-tailed weasels living in a marsh in Ontario for his M.Sc. After consulting a wildlife veterinarian about the weasels' parasites he decided to train as a veterinarian. Gary has spent his professional career at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine working on diseases of wild mammals, birds and fish. One of the most fascinating of these is Tyzzer's disease, not only because of the ecology involved but also because of the remarkable scientists who contributed to our understanding of it. Gary will tell us about both the biology and the history of events occurring largely unseen around us.
