Laramie, Wy – The Game and Fish Department is announcing the discovery of Chronic Wasting Disease in a new area. The deer came from a location near the Snowy Range Mountains near the Colorado border. It is an area where C-W-D has not been found before, but officials say the finding is not surprising.
The Game and Fish department reports testing 950 animals so far this fall with 13 positive results. This being the only new area documented.
There is still no evidence that C-W-D can move from deer and elk to humans.
