At necropsy; ascites and fibrinous pericarditis were observed. There was hepatomegaly, cardiomegaly and fibrinous material in abdominal fluid. In the pericardial sac, fibrinopurulent fluid (fibrinous pericarditis) was observed. A 6 cm needle was found in reticulum piercing pericardium through diaphragm. Microbiological examination of pericardial fluid revealed E.coli and Streptococcus organisms.
