Deer on western Bighorns has chronic wasting

Associated Press - October 14, 2009 7:15 AM ET

CODY, Wyo. (AP) - A mule deer buck killed on the west slope of the Bighorn Mountains has tested positive for chronic wasting disease.

The buck was killed last month in hunt area 46, in the Shell Creek drainage about 14 miles east of the town of Shell.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department says that the closest previously known area with the disease was about 35 to 40 miles to the east, on the eastern slope of the Bighorns.

The game department says major health organizations have said the risk of humans contracting disease from infected wildlife appears to be low. However, they say that people shouldn't eat animals that look sick or that test positive for chronic wasting disease.
