Chronic Wasting Disease, now, better-known as 'Zombie Deer Disease' is making-headlines across the U.S. The first case was discovered in Colorado back in 1967. The deadly-disease has spread to 23 states and into the Canadian provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. I saw a report yesterday on a national television news service and the report suggested grave concerns on the part of, amongst other people, deer hunters. Thought you might want to hear the thoughts of retired professor of veterinary medicine at Texas A&M, Dr. Don Davis was asked by the Texas Deer Association to do a comprehensive review of the literature concerning chronic wasting disease or CWD. “The premier organization representing deer and elk farmers across the United States, the American Cervid Alliance, released a scientific report regarding Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD). The report outlines the disease’s transmission, geographic distribution, and effect on deer populations (or lack thereof). A few key findings of the report are that CWD is prevalent in less than one percent in over one million deer tested nationally, and to date not one single case of CWD has been found in humans despite tens of thousands of CWD test positive deer and elk being ingested by people.
