Deer CWD

Deer CWD

By Heather Burke. CREATED Nov 15, 2011


      Chronic Wasting Disease still plagues deer in Wisconsin and around the United States.

     The disease attacks the brain and always kills. It was first discovered in the 1960's but didn't hit Wisconsin until 2002.

      The gun-deer season is creeping closer, and many wonder what the status of the disease is now.

     NBC26 Videojournalist Heather Burke has this special report.
