ONEIDA COUNTY - A wild deer in Oneida County tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease.

The DNR says a deer found in Crescent Township had CWD. 


This means Oneida County will have a new baiting and feeding for another three years. 

It will also renew a two-year baiting ban in Langlade County. 

Lincoln is already under a three year baiting ban because of wild deer found with CWD earlier this year. 

This is Oneida County's first CWD-positive wild deer. 

Previous cases of CWD in the county were from a deer farm.
