Testing for chronic wasting disease in deer last year did not reveal any new outbreaks in southern Michigan or the Upper Peninsula.  Michigan Department of Natural Resources officials presented an update on the state’s chronic wasting disease surveillance to the Natural Resources Commission at an April meeting in Lansing.  Michigan counties with cases of free-ranging CWD-positive deer include Hillsdale, Jackson, Ingham, Eaton, Clinton, Ionia, Kent, Montcalm, Gratiot, Isabella, and one positive from Dickinson in the Upper Peninsula.
