Six cases of scrapie were confirmed in two separately maintained flocks of moufflon, in both of which the disease appeared to be endemic. The clinical signs and histopathology were indistinguishable from those observed in scrapie-affected domesticated sheep. The pathology included lesions in the cerebral cortex which, although commonly present in scrapie-affected sheep, have not previously been described in the natural disease.
