TREMPEALEAU CO. DEER TESTS POSITIVE FOR CWD

Two deer at Brush Ranch Outfitters near Galesville are testing positive for chronic wasting disease.

The disease is a neurological disease found commonly in deer, elk, and moose. Animals with the disease show symptoms through abnormal behavior and loss of body function.

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture said the remaining 495 deer and 10 elk on the ranch have now been quarantined and veterinarians will investigate to see which animals have already been exposed.
