*Y. pseudotuberculosis obtained from lung, heart, kidney, spleen, liver, and intestine; Y. enterocolitica obtained from spleen and intestine. For Y. pseudotuberculosis spleen, liver, and intestine samples, isolates were obtained in mixed culture accompanied by colonies of 1–2 nonspecific bacteria. For all remaining tissues, Y. pseudotuberculosis and Y. enterocolitica were isolated in pure culture.
