Chronic Wasting Disease Case Confirmed In One Farmed Oklahoma Elk

https://www.news9.com/story/40360765...DCeu46uP9lPJmQ


LINCOLN COUNTY, Oklahoma - An elk from a farmed herd in Lincoln County has tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD), according to Oklahoma wildlife officials.

According to officials with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, a 2-year-old bull elk died as result of an injury, and was tested through routine surveillance in compliance with the breeding facility's Certified Herd Plan.

CWD is a fatal neurological disease that affects the brain of elk, deer and other cervid species, officials said. There are no vaccines or treatment for the disease.

The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry (ODAFF) quarantined the farmed breeding facility, and will be testing wild deer in the area for CWD, officials said.

The State Veterninarian has issued a stop-movement order for any crevid transport for 30 days in order to asses the situation, according to wildlife officials.

This is the second case of CWD in Oklahoma. The first case was confirmed in 1998.

Officials said that no health risk to humans or non-cervid livestock has been documented.

The Department of Agriculture, Food & Forestry and the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation are implementing emergency measures to monitor and protect the state’s wild and farmed cervid herds and will provide information to the public as it becomes available.

Actually, that is not true. CWD has been transmitted to a monkey in a laboratory and the last time I checked, monkeys were not cervid animals.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Point being, monkeys are a lot closer to humans than livestock.

if i remember correctly they also injected CWD directly into the monkeys brain. thats not really a good indicator.


i do believe that CWD will make the jump to humans...eventually, and i also believe when that happens they will try their best to keep the lid on it as long as possible.


i also believe the CWD prion is already in our food chain as the CWD prion is in plants aka crops and they arent saying squat about that either.
