My city killed about 250 dear this winter because of overpopulation. The idea was to send the meat to area food banks. Then they detected CWD in the meat. It appeared to have come from just one animal but because they hadn't tracked them carefully they had to toss all of it.

Anyone have audio/video of warren benman/rc collins mad cow disease. I can find it on the Phil Hendrie website, but it's pay to play.

In the absence of wolves or other large predators, ungulates like deer spend extended periods of time in the same places, in larger gregarious groups (also are happier to be in the open munching down bean plants in farmer's fields).

It makes it a simple matter for diseases and parasites to be passed on and accumulate in the deer, unlike livestock they don't get vaccines and worm medicine. Or prions to accumulate in concentration.

Same.

Is that what happens when you eat a zombie deer? Or is it the reverse -- the deer somehow caught it off the local CHUDs?

Osterholm echoed the CDC when warning the disease could potentially spread to humans in the future.

CWD was first detected in a captive deer in the late 1960s, the CDC said. Symptoms of the disease include drooling, stumbling, lack of coordination, lack of fear of people, aggression, and listlessness.


hmmm.. Florida Joke or RNC joke... So many tough decisions tonight

Hey article, maybe tell us what Chronic Wasting Disease is or does to the deer since it's kind of the whole point of the article.

FTFA:  'Zombie deer' disease keeps spreading across country, hunters fear it could impact industry

I had no idea there was a 'Zombie deer' industry.   Learn something new (and utterly useless) every day.

I'd think that if Bambi's mom had gone zombie, then the hunter's shots wouldn't kill her... and she wanted his braaaaiiinnnnsssss....

There's also lots of scare videos out there -- "The Final Epidemic!" "How Chronic Wasting Disease Could Become the True Zombie Apocalypse", claiming a deer obviously sick with something else is a "zombie deer", etc.

It's thought to be a prion disease, which might conceivably spread to a human who eats it under certain circumstances, much like BSE in cattle. Unfortunately the prions can also contaminate the soil almost indefinitely, so once it pops up in a local deer population, it'll probably always be a problem there.
