Dozens of Deer Dying in Montana’s Milk River Valley
Since the beginning of August dozens of white-tail deer have been found dead or dying in Montana's northeastern Milk River Valley. Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials say they don’t know what’s caused the deaths, but they suspect it may be epi-zootic hemorrhagic disease. This disease affects white-tail deer.
Samples were sent in to the state lab but results will not be available until next week sometime. FWP is asking for help in tracking the disease, asking residents to call the FWP office in Glasgow at 406-228-3700 if they see a deer with the symptoms. The symptoms are hemorrhaging, fever, and an urge to be near fresh water to cool down. From Greatfallstribune.com.
