Default RE: Chronic Wasting Disease - On the Increase or Decline?

It is on the increase...In wv, we have a on going study of it's is growing ever so slightly it seems..All deer killed within the area in wv it has been found, gets tested for it....they also do sampling throughout the year..each year the number of infected deer have increased...sorta a scary thought...most states do not have anytype of testing program..the problem could be bigger than it seems..even wv only tests near the area it was first found...Alot of studies are pointing the finger at high fence/ deer farming places for the reason of the wv they have just started a new law that deer farming fences must be at least 10ft high...
