Madison, Wis. The chronic wasting disease test results from the July 13-19 landowner deer shooting period in western Dane and eastern Iowa counties are in, and wildlife managers report that 7 of 336 samples tested positive.

These results bring the tally of known CWD cases in the
CWD-infection area to 31 animals since the first positives were
announced Feb. 28. The “eradication zone” was increased from 374 to
389 square miles because of the location of one of the recent
positive cases. The state intends to test nearly 50,000 deer this
fall.

The most recent shooting period was held Aug. 10-16, and a total
of 959 deer have been collected. The final shooting period is Sept.
7-13. For more information on Wisconsin’s treatment of CWD, visit
