Chronic Wasting Disease found in deer north of Chester

Chronic Wasting Disease found in deer north of Chester

Several thousand additional samples are awaiting testing by Michigan State University, so numbers for this deer season could still change. It is very rare that a CWD suspect will not be confirmed as a CWD-positive animal, but it is possible, according to the DNR.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will hold a public meeting in Joliet Thursday, Dec. 14, 2017, to talk about chronic wasting disease, or CWD, and a special deer hunt this winter.

Though there is no evidence it is transmissible to humans, it is recommended to never ingest meat from animals that appear to be sick or are known to have chronic wasting disease.

Mandatory deer registration at check stations within five miles of the townships within 72 hours of harvest beginning November 15.

Antlerless deer can be tagged using the deer or deer combo licenses during firearm, muzzleloader and late antlerless seasons.

"Hunters are our best ally in understanding the magnitude of chronic wasting disease in MI", said Chad Stewart, DNR deer specialist. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends hunters who have harvested a deer, elk, or moose from a known infected area have the animal tested prior to consuming it.

The 2017 Iowa deer harvest is running 4.5 percent ahead of the 2016 totals. They have also opened additional deer check stations and encourage all hunters to have their deer tested at the stations.

The first chronic wasting disease deer was found in May 2015 and the DNR said they have tested 23,000 deer since. CWD is a progressive, fatal disease affecting the central nervous system of mule deer, white-tailed deer, elk and moose. In Kent County, 3 cases were found in Nelson and Spencer Townships.

Ten other CWD suspected or confirmed deer were found this year and last year in Clinton and Ingham county. TSEs are caused by infectious, mis-folded prion proteins, which cause normal prion proteins throughout a healthy animal's body to mis-fold, resulting in organ damage and eventual death.
