from the poisoning are almost entirely
confined to sheep. Nausea, muscular

principal symptoms of the poisoning.

but affected livestock, if kept quiet for

The death camas (Zygadenus) is most
dangerous early in the season, not be
cause the plant is more poisonous at
that time, but because it is more likely
to be eaten at that time when other
forage is dry. Later, sheep are less
likely to eat a large quantity because
of the greater abundance of other food
As a matter of fact, most of the cases
of extensive poisoning have occurred
before the flowering of the plant, which
occurs in the late Spring.
It is Impossible to make even an ap
proximate estimate of the losses of
sheep because of the Zygadenus, but it
is certain that they are very large. In
vestigations have led specialists to be
