Chronic Wasting Disease – According to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, a captive deer has tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) in Pennsylvania. This is the second case of CWD discovered in a captive deer farm since 2014.

The three-year-old white-tailed deer died on a farm in Bedford County last January. It was born and raised on the same premises, which is under quarantine. The investigation is ongoing and additional herds may be quarantined.

The Bedford County deer farm is within DMA 2, the only area of the state where CWD has been detected in wild deer. At this point, however, it is not yet known how this case will affect those who live or hunt in the area, said Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC) Executive Director R. Matthew Hough.
                                      
                                          
CWD Impact on Elk Herd - CWD attacks the brain of infected deer, elk and moose, producing small lesions that eventually result in death. Animals can get the disease through direct contact with saliva, feces and urine from an infected animal. The PGC collects samples from hunter-harvested deer and elk as well as those that appear sick or behave abnormally.

During a recent House Game and Fisheries Committee hearing, state Rep. Barry Jozwiak (R-Berks) asked Executive Director Hough about elk and CWD. You can watch the exchange below.

The Bedford County deer farm is within Disease Management Area 2, the only area of the state where CWD has been detected in wild deer. At this point, however, it is not yet known how this case will affect those who live or hunt in the area, said Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC) Executive Director R. Matthew Hough.

Thats right, keep pissing around with those captive deer till we lose our deer herd, then the insurance companies will all be happy. Call your state rep. and demand a double fence around those disease infested things before its too late.
