Chronic Wasting Disease Found on Deer Farm Langlade County


A doe on a deer farm in Langlade County has tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease.

It’s the first case confirmed in the county,according to this map from the DNR. The county was considered a "CWD affected county" due to the disease being found within 10 miles of its borders. 

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection says a 1-year-old doe tested positive.

All 57 deer at the farm were already under quarantine after receiving animals from a CWD affected farm.

The animals will remain quarantined as more testing is done.

In previous years, deer farms in Oneida and Florence counties have tested positive for CWD.

It’s also been found in wild deer populations in Oneida and Lincoln Counties.
