Officials have reported the forth case of chronic wasting disease (CWD) in Michigan deer.
According to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources a 1.5 year-old buck that was rumored to be carrying CWD is confirmed to have the disease. The deer was killed in the DeWitt Township.
Samples of the deer’s potential CWD was confirmed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Veterinary Services Laboratory in Iowa on November 30.
Kelly Sicilano-Carter of the DNR told reporters, “This is good news considering that only four of 3,000 tested deer have CWD.”
This is the forth confirmed case of CWD in the Great Lakes State.
