No CWD detected in Minnesota's wild deer; bovine TB results pending
All of the samples from wild deer taken last fall by hunters in southeastern Minnesota that were tested for the presence of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) have come back negative for the disease.
"This is good news for Minnesota," said Dr. Erika Butler, wildlife veterinarian for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). "Extensive tests on wild deer in southeastern Minnesota and additional targeted tests of sick animals statewide all have been CWD negative."
