Chronic Wasting Disease Found in Illinois

Ohio DNR states they think the CWD is being spread through nose to nose contact such as at feeder sites, so at the presernt time I have stoped all feeding on my property, such as corn feeders, they still have food plots to visit and the neighbors corn rows, but again as the corn spills out of his equipment they get a pile and nose to nose contact occurs, hope this stays out of Ohio. Anyone have any reports of it in Ohio????

Hi Chechatonga,

I have not heard of any cwd in Ohio. I have heard speculation that sharing of fluids (snot in this case) between animals can accelerate the spread of cwd.
