Positive For Cwda

Wild deer in central Dunn County was recently discovered to have Chronic Wasting Disease.

Wednesday night, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources looked to address any concerns.

The meeting at the Dunn County Judicial Center also looked at what plans should be put in place to deal with the spreading disease.

The infected deer was located outside of Menomonie.

Officials are trying to see if this case is tied to other nearby CWD cases.

Six positives have been found in western in Eau Claire County, and now the positive in Dunn County. They’re about 18 miles apart. What is really necessary to know is if there are additional positives between the one in Dunn County and the six positives in Eau Claire County, to see if there may be a bigger connection between those two.

The DNR reports more than 1,500 deer have been analyzed in the county since CWD testing began.
