Default Chronic Wasting Disease found in WV Whitetail

Well, that was fast. They found it in NY in the spring. I am in Mon county, so I don't know. This may be my last season deer hunting. I sure will miss it, back to squirrels and turkeys...

I hate to hear that. It is close to home, here in VA. So, keep it up north we don't want any! I hope this will be taken care of before it becomes widespread. It's a shame to see animals die in such a manner.

I wonder how long this stuff has actually been in the wild deer and elk herds. Sometimes I think it may actually be a normal disease that has been around for centuries. Just another way mother nature controls wildlife populations.
I still think that transportation of deer heads for taxidermy across the country is a good possibility of the way this stuff is transmitted. The saw hits the brain material, some gets on the taxidermist hands, shoes or clothing and he goes out to the woods hunting and the prions etc. could/can be spread. Lots more of that happening than the actual live deer being hauled.

From what I hear, they are going to kill 100 deer in hampshire county in the area where they found this one. I sure hope they don't find any other deer with CWD.
