CWD Found In PA High Fence Hunting Perserve

Get ready.

CWD Disease Management Area 2 ( DMA 2) will be expanding again.

Deer harvested in Franklin County tests positive for chronic wasting disease

"The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture announced Friday a captive deer tested positive for chronic wasting disease, marking the first new case in a captive deer farm since 2014.

The 4-year-old deer was harvested from a hunting preserve in Franklin County in November. Samples from the animal tested positive for CWD at the Pennsylvania Veterinary Laboratory in Harrisburg.
The deer was raised on a farm in Fulton County until it was sold to the Franklin County facility in August. Both farms are under quarantine and an investigation will continue, making it possible that more herds could be quarantined................."

Deer farms again being the vehicle of disease transmission.

This might increase DMA 1 well with the Franklin County location. Each positive case produces a 10 mile radius DMA.

Again deer farms and the urine coming from all deer farms need banned. Even then, t this point, we will slow the spread. Not stop it.

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

The deer farms have done an excellent job of spreading CWD. Not blaming all deer farmers. Some just don't do enough to prevent the spread, and this includes the people that oversee the deer or the lack of regulations concerning this issue. The farms that they find have it are probably the ones that are reporting their deer, when they think they may have a problem. How many deer operations have hid deer that may be sick? This then makes the whole deer farm operation look bad. A farmer with a disease free herd and the proper precautions , probably has no better a chance of having CWD than wild deer. Its here to stay, probably could have been delayed, but not prevented. It probably should not have crossed the Mississippi river as soon as it did. And when it did cross it was probably in the back of a deer trailer, or maybe carcasses brought back by hunters.
