Another deer tests positive for CWD

Another deer tests positive for CWD

Deer infected with CWD starts to lose weight, stops interacting with other deer, salivates more, and loses their fear of humans. It is spread by misfolded proteins, or prions, that cause other proteins to misfold around them.

Zombie deer disease was given its name after deer starving to death were noticed in Fort Collins, Colorado, stumbling around like possessed beings.

There is no record of a human being infected, however a recent study for the Canadian government has sparked fears it could.

The Chronic Wasting Disease Working Group just has issued a list of recommendations to Michigan Natural Resources Commission, which is a policymaking group connecting members elected by the governor.

Dreamers in limbo as lawmakers vote to end government shutdown
Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Joe Manchin III, D-W.Va., would force him to abide by his commitments. "Here's what I predict". The upper chamber was expected to pass the measure Monday afternoon, then send it to the House for quick approval.

Comparing Zombie deer disease to the condition that caused such a mass health crisis, Mark Zabel, an immunologist at Colorado State University, said they were concerned CWD would have a similar impact.

However, the disease was first diagnosed in Colorado almost 50 years ago, since when it has been spreading all through Canada, neighboring states and many other states nearby the Great Lakes including MI and Wisconsin. DNR officials say the two-year-old buck harvested south of Rhinelander and is the first confirmed positive deer in the county since the agency started tracking the disease in 2002.

A document by the Health Products and Food Branch of Health Canada entitled "Potential Human Health Risks from Chronic Wasting Disease" warned: "While extensive surveillance in Canada and elsewhere has not provided any direct evidence that CWD has infected humans, the potential for CWD to be transmitted to humans can not be excluded".

The research at Colorado State University suggests that the agents causing CWD are susceptible to evolution, which could also eventually transform into a prion that infects humans.
