EHD outbreaks reported in Nebraska, Michigan

Virus killing deer along Platte, Neb. agency says

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says a viral disease is killing deer along the Platte River and possibly over a much wider area.

Epizootic hemorrhagic disease spreads from deer to deer by the bite of a small insect known as a midge.

The disease causes hemorrhaging within the body. A high fever may result, causing the deer to seek water. That’s why deer killed by the disease usually are found in or near water.

The deer may show bleeding from body openings.

The disease is not a threat to humans.

The commission wants people to report to their nearest Game and Parks office any deer deaths that may be attributed to this disease.


Fatal deer disease found in 2 Michigan counties

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A viral disease that is often fatal to deer has turned up in two Michigan counties.

The state Department of Natural Resources said Tuesday that deer infected with epizootic hemorrhagic disease, or EHD, have been found in eastern Ionia and northern Branch counties.

The disease has been confirmed in one deer in each county. DNR spokesman Ed Golder said other carcasses are being tested.

EHD is transmitted by a biting fly. It causes extensive internal bleeding. Infected deer lose their appetite and fear of humans, grow weaker, salivate excessively and finally become unconscious.

They’re often found sick or dead along or in bodies of water. There is no evidence that humans can get the EHD virus.

EHD outbreaks have happened in isolated sections of Michigan nearly every year since 2006.
