Three More Deer Test Positive for CWD

2/5/03

Three more whitetail deer tested positive for chronic wasting disease in Wisconsin.

The state Department of Natural Resources said Friday the new cases are all from the eradication zone where the disease already existed.

The agency says the latest test results bolster evidence that about two percent of the deer in the Mount Horeb area are infected with chronic wasting disease. The first deer with the disease was found there about a year ago.

The latest test results bring to 58 the number of wild deer in Wisconsin found with the disease.

So far, lab experts have examined brain samples from nearly 14,000 deer turned in by hunters.
