More cases of CWD found in Kent, Montcalm deer

More cases of CWD found in Kent, Montcalm deer”

Deer hunters are being encouraged to help monitor and track the presence of chronic wasting disease by allowing the Iowa DNR to collect tissues samples from those they shoot, especially deer harvested in northeast Iowa.

"CWD suspect" means a deer tested positive on an initial screening test, but has not yet been confirmed through additional testing.

Most of the deer with the disease is in Montcalm County. The other four deer were all from south of Billings near the Wyoming border.

Five mule deer and one white-tailed deer doe harvested by hunters in Carbon County recently tested positive for CWD - the first ever in the state's wildlife populations. Fish, Wildlife and Parks is in the process of putting together a team for the latest detection north of Chester. The specifics of this hunt would be determined by the incident command team. As a result, FWP has proposed a special two-month hunt to gather information about the distribution and prevalence of CWD in south central Montana. This hunt will come before the Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission at their meeting Thursday in Helena for final approval. Currently, there is no general deer hunting season open near where the deer was harvested in HD 401.

To date, there have been no reported cases of CWD infection in humans and there is no evidence chronic wasting disease presents any risk to humans, either through contact with an infected animal or from handling venison.

Chronic wasting disease can only be effectively detected in samples from dead animals.

With the firearm deer season complete, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources has now identified a total of 30 free-ranging white-tailed deer that are confirmed or suspected to have chronic wasting disease. 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.

The DNR says they have tested about 23,000 deer since May 2015 when the first case was found.
