A new study is shedding light on how chronic wasting disease is spreading through Wisconsin.

Young buck L. Painter


The U.S. Geological Survey reviewed C-W-D data from 2002 through 2014 and were able to develop a more accurate modeling system to forecast how the fatal brain disease might be advancing through an area of southwestern Wisconsin near the Wisconsin River.

According to the National Wildlife Health Center, CWD is moving in association with landscape features such as denser forests...It also seems to be blocked by the river corridor by moving along with it but not crossing it.

CWD has been found in 43 of Wisconsin’s 72 counties since 2002 and remains to be a threat.

Hunter’s should consider having their deer tested for the disease. Chronic Wasting Disease Map
