Twenty-three livetrapped and two trapper-caught river otters (Lutra canadensis) from northeastern Pennsylvania (USA) were examined for ectoparasites immediately after their captures during 1981 to 1985. Ectoparasites were collected from both trapper-caught otters, but from only one livetrapped otter. One species of tick (Ixodes cookei) and one flea (Oropsylla arctomys) were collected.
