It shows that as our sample size exponentially increased, so did the positives. My question is, has PA really tested that many wild animals between 2002 and 2012 when it showed up? Maybe we have, but seems far fetched.

It has been consumed. Many,many times since the 70's.

I completely agree, but people have been eating cervids west of the Mississippi since then. I live in the heart of DMA2 and I'm sure I know people, if not myself, that has consumed it.

Back to my original question WW, and maybe you know this. Have they been testing for CWD in this state since 2002 on the scale that the bar graph shows? If so, where did the samples come from? Was CWD even on our radar to be testing at that scale? I understand an uptick in testing by 2011 when it showed up in Md.

Looking at the number tested and the number that came back positive, even in the “hot area”, they are only finding about 2-3 deer out of every 100 tested. If you are a statistics person, you can assume that is the current prevalence rate in the wild population. They have sampled enough from a statistical standpoint that they can firmly say right now it affects about 2.5% of the population in the core area, DMA2. I am in DMA 3, where they found a total of six, but still got mine tested. Have not got the results back yet.
