All deer at Crow Wing County deer farm euthanized in deal to contain CWD

Minnesota Department of Natural Resources – Star Tribune

Biologists studying the spread of CWD have feared that the disease in captive deer will spread to the wild in places like Crow Wing County.

The deer farm in Crow Wing County that has harbored chronic wasting disease since 2016 is out of business under an agreement that paid the owner to have his entire herd euthanized.

The Minnesota Board of Animal Health announced the "depopulation'' late Wednesday without disclosing how much the farmer was paid or how many deer were killed to manage the threat of the disease spreading to the region's wild deer.
