April 2014 -5th and 6th CWD Positive Deer Reported

Deer farms in another two far-flung spots at nearly opposite ends of Pennsylvania have joined the state's roster spots quarantined after chronic wasting disease has been found in a deer associated with them, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.

The department on late Tuesday announced that a 5-year-old deer that died on a farm near Reynoldsville, about five miles west of DuBois, in Jefferson County has tested positive for CWD.

The department has placed that farm, and a deer farm at Walnutport, Northampton County, where the deer was born, under quarantine.

Deer legally may not be moved on or off the properties, and the ongoing investigation may lead to additional farms being quarantined.


With the addition of the second road kill buck announced this week in Bedford county (and another Maryland deer found to have CWD six miles from that) the PA total is six now.

So Adams/ York Counties - DMA one

Bedford / Fulton county - DMA 2 (the DNA was increased in size running from Somerset Country to Interstate 70 this week)

Now there should be a DMA in the vicinity of the Northampton Deer Farm

Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.
