gondii has been reported in various wild animals belonging to the family Mustelidae, such as mink (Mustela vison), river otters (Lontra canadensis), southern sea otters (Enhydra lutris nereis), black-footed ferrets (Mustela nigripes), stone marten (Martes foina), pine marten (Martes martes), ferret (Mustela putorius furo), Eurasian otter otters (Lutra lutra

Such studies would be extremely important, since it has been previously demonstrated that other otter species, namely Eurasian otters (Lutra lutra
Linnaeus, 1758), can be potential carriers of pathogenic and antimicrobial resistant bacteria, including Salmonella (Oliveira et al., 2010a; Semedo-Lemsaddek et al., 2013).
