NEBRASKA CWD tested 3,400 deer, with 17 testing positive 2007

Game and Parks: Disease infecting more than 100 deer in Nebraska





Associated Press - December 18, 2007 11:05 AM ET



NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska Game and Parks officials say chronic wasting disease has infected more than 100 deer across the state.



Chronic wasting disease is a fatal condition that attacks the central nervous system of deer, moose and elk, and causes brain damage -- similar to mad cow disease.



Since 2000, biologists have tested 33,000 deer; 131 have tested positive for the disease. This year, biologists tested 3,400 deer, with 17 testing positive.



State wildlife biologist Richard Nelson says most of the positive results have come from deer in the Panhandle area.



Nelson says the disease is slowly spreading from Colorado to Wyoming and now through Nebraska.



So far, the disease has not posed a health problem to humans. Nelson says officials will continue to test and monitor free-ranging herds.

Terry,





I have to request that you discontinue from posting information on CWD. I have received concerns from individuals on the validity of your information. Since I am not educated on the subject, I cannot validate that the information is correct and or factual. As time moves on, this subject will become quite a "touchy subject" and any information, factual or not, will be scrutinized. From now on, we will have to rely on the PGC to educate the residents here in PA on the subject.



Thank you for your concern in this matter and keeping a close vigil on the topic.



Samuel

terry
