Chronic Wasting Disease is killing deer near Oklahoma
Oklahoma has activated its next stage of Chronic Wasting Disease response plan.
Chronic Wasting Disease is killing deer near the Oklahoma panhandle border.
A carcass was recently found on a Texas road where there is a history of the disease, prompting Oklahoma wildlife officials to activate the next stage of its CWD response plan.
CWD creates holes in deer’s brains that resemble sponges and it is always fatal, but transmission to livestock has never been documented.
