CWD found in deer outside of Minnesota's outbreak zone


December 6, 2018

A new case of chronic wasting disease (CWD) was detected outside of the core outbreak area, one day after the Department of Natural Resources announced a stepped-up program to control the spread of the disease.

The two-year-old “presumptive positive” buck was harvested Nov. 17 on private land in far northern Houston County, 9.5 miles from the Wisconsin border. The site is 31 miles from Preston, the epicenter of Minnesota’s largest outbreak of CWD in wild deer, and 25 miles from the nearest deer linked to the outbreak.
