Oneida County Deer Tests Positive for Chronic Wasting
Published on 04/23/2018 under News Another wild deer in Northern Wisconsin has tested positive for chronic wasting disease, this time in Oneida County. The DNR announced over the weekend that the positive test came from a one year old doe that was harvested on a disease surveillance permit. The deer was taken in the Town of Crescent. As a result of the positive test, state law dictates that Oneida County's existing baiting and feeding ban will be reset for another three years. As we just saw with a positive test in Lincoln County last fall, DNR officials will work with the Oneida County Deer Advisory Council, conduct surveillance activities, and establish additional CWD sampling locations. This is Oneida County's first positive test of a wild deer. Previously a deer on a game farm had tested positive.
