The last case of the fatal brain disease that has been found in deer was south of Crawford County. So Rick Bablos says CWD can easily be brought back to the area.
And now.......it's been found just over the border in Southeastern Minnesota
In a rare move, the DNR is looking the possibility of buying a game farm in Portage County where CWD was found in several deer a couple of years ago. Since CWD can be found in the soil, the DNR wants to quarantine the farm, which was the state's first operation to have animals test positive for CWD back in 2002.
