MADISON - The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources sampled more than 3,100 deer for chronic wasting disease statewide in 2015. In all, 290 positive detections were made, primarily within the endemic area in southern Wisconsin.
For 2015 sampling and prevalence data and more information regarding chronic wasting disease search the DNR website, dnr.wi.gov, for keyword "CWD."
"Once again, hunter cooperation has been outstanding. This year was our first sampling year under the new electronic deer registration system, and we used this opportunity to try new collection methods," said Tim Marien, DNR wildlife health biologist. "Although the total number of deer tested decreased from 2014, that was not unexpected this first year. We learned from the experience and will continue to work closely with hunters to make sample submission convenient and gather more samples."
The department has monitored trends in chronic wasting disease distribution and prevalence within Wisconsin since its discovery in 2002.
According to Marien, prevalence continues to increase within the department's long-term monitoring area in southwest Wisconsin, and remains higher in males than females and higher in adults than yearlings.
Monitoring efforts also included ongoing surveillance within a 10-mile radius of each new CWD positive wild deer found in 2012 in Juneau, Adams, and Portage counties in central Wisconsin. Since then, eight additional positives were found in Adams and Portage counties
Surveillance was also conducted surrounding CWD-positive captive deer facilities in Marathon and Eau Claire counties, with no wild CWD deer detected.
Efforts in 2015-16 marked the fourth year of CWD surveillance in Washburn County, following the 2012 discovery of a CWD-positive adult doe near Shell Lake in northwest Wisconsin. Following recommendations from a local community action team, local landowners and hunters helped the department sample more than 2,000 deer in the area over the last four years. No new positives have been detected. Based on four years of sampling, all information has indicated the disease is not widespread in the Washburn area, and may occur at a very low prevalence rate.
"On behalf of our whole department, I want to thank hunters for their continued role in providing samples and helping us monitor this disease within Wisconsin," said Tami Ryan, DNR wildlife health section chief. Last Revised: Tuesday, March 15, 2016

*** Report of the Committee on Wildlife Diseases FY2015 CWD TSE PRION Detections in Farmed Cervids and Wild ***
the CWD LOTTO ENTITLEMENT of captive game farms where the states pays game farms for CWD MUST BE STOPPED. if the cwd infected farm does not buy insurance for any and all loss from CWD for them and any party that does business with them, and or any loss to the state, and or any products there from, that’s to bad, they should never be allowed to be permitted. in fact, for any state that does allow game farming, urine mills, sperm mills, antler mills, velvet mills, big high fence ranch, little low fence farm, in my opinion, it’s that states responsibility to protect that state, thus, any states that allow these farms and business there from, it should be mandatory before any permit is allowed, that game farm must have enough personal insurance that would cover that farm, any farm that does business with them, and or any products there from, and the state, before such permit is issued. personally, I am sick and tired of all the big ag entitlement programs, and that’s all cwd indemnity is. in fact, the USDA CWD INDEMNITY PROGRAM, should read, THE USDA CWD ENTITLEMENT PROGRAM.
we cannot, and must not, let the industry regulate itself, especially with the junk science they try to use. it’s just not working, and it’s been going on long enough.
if they are not going to be science based, they must be banned.
science has told us for 3 decade or longer, that these are the things that _might_ work, yet thanks to the industry, and government catering to industry, regulations there from have failed, because of catering to the industry, and the cwd tse prion agent has continued to spread during this time. a fine example is Texas. ...
