Three Northwest Kansas Deer Test Positive for Chronic Wastin

Three Northwest Kansas Deer Test Positive for Chronic Wasting Disease

Thursday, January 08, 2009

Pratt, KS - infoZine - Three Kansas white-tailed deer taken by hunters during the 2008 deer season have tested positive for chronic wasting disease (CWD) in analysis of tissue samples collected in recent weeks by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks. The three affected deer were taken in Decatur County. One of the deer was killed by a Colorado hunter, and subsequently tested and confirmed as CWD-positive at Colorado State University. Tissue samples from the other two deer yielded “presumptive positive” status after initial testing at Kansas State University, and were confirmed as positive in follow-up analysis at the USDA Veterinary Services Lab in Iowa.

Hunters can help protect the health of the Kansas deer herd by taking the following steps to avoid accidentally introducing CWD to a new area in Kansas:

do not transport deer carcasses far from the area where the deer lived, especially from areas where CWD has been detected, such as northwestern Kansas; and

if a carcass is transported, the hunter should make sure that carcass waste is not dumped into the environment where local deer or elk can come into contact with it. Carcass waste can be disposed of by double-bagging it and taking it to a landfill.
