Agency sampled more than 6,000 deer for chronic wasting disease statewide in 2016; positive detections primarily within the endemic area in southern Wisconsin.
All but one of those positives were in a cluster that was about four miles west of Lanesboro.
Among the restrictions now covered by regulation is the prohibition on importing into Pennsylvania any high-risk parts from deer, elk, moose or other cervids harvested within states or Canadian provinces where CWD is present.
In 2005, CWD was found in captive and wild white-tailed deer in Oneida County. After intensive disease response efforts, no subsequent cases have been detected.
Agency spokesman said that, through mostly confiscations, the site gathered many more dead deer than it could give away, resulting in the pileup of deer left to decompose naturally
