No new CWD in Missouri deer

March 19, 2010 at 06:55 PM

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Environmental officials say tests of 50 captive white-tailed deer in Linn County turned up no signs of chronic wasting disease.

State Veterinarian Taylor Woods says it doesn’t appear that there is widespread infection in the northern Missouri county’s deer herd. A captive white-tailed deer there tested positive for the disease last month.

Chronic wasting disease is a neurological disease found in deer, elk and moose. It has been documented in 15 states and two Canadian provinces.

The disease is transmitted live from animal-to-animal or soil-to-animal contact and has never been reported in humans or cattle.

The state Department of Conservation continues to test free-ranging deer within 5 miles of where the initial positive case was found.

CWD is transmitted by live animal to animal contact or soil to animal contact.  The disease was first recognized in 1967 in captive mule deer in the Colorado Division of Wildlife captive wildlife research facility in Fort Collins, Colorado. CWD has been documented in deer mcp and/or elk in Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the Canadian Provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan.  There has been no evidence that the disease can be transmitted to humans.
