Second Positive Test for Chronic Wasting Disease in Waukesha County Submitted: 04/05/2013
MILWAUKEE - A second deer tests positive for Chronic Wasting Disease in Southern Wisconsin. The Wisconsin DNR has confirmed Waukesha County's second deer to test positive for chronic wasting disease. Tests confirm a 3 1/2-year-old buck killed March 3 in Wales had the brain disease. It was observed wandering in a stupor.

A law enforcement officer dispatched the animal. It was the second CWD-positive deer found in Waukesha County this year. A doe, 9 to 12 years old, was found dead Jan. 3 in the Town of Delafield. It also tested positive. Reports say it's the first CWD postive testing in the county in 11 years of testing. The Town of Delafield's finding caused a ban on baiting and feeding deer in Washington County. The practices had already been prohibited in Waukesha County.
