Second Positive Test for Chronic Wasting Disease in Waukesha CountySubmitted: 04/05/2013
Story By Associated Press

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.
