Abstract

An adult male Eurasian river otter (Lutra lutra) was diagnosed with systemic infection. Microbiologic findings identified Streptococcus suis serotype 2, clonal complex 28, and sequence type 629. Genetic analysis strongly suggested the transmission of S. suis isolate from pigs to wild animals through environmental contamination.
