Two deer in western Wisconsin have tested positive for chronic wasting disease.
The state’s Department of Natural Resources yesterday said a deer in Polk County and another in Trempealeau County tested positive. The deer, which was taken in the wild, is the first to test positive in Polk County. That means a new, three-year ban on baiting and feeding. The Trempealeau County deer is not the first, but the county is returning to a baiting and feeding ban nonetheless.
