ST. PAUL, Minn. – Another case of chronic wasting disease has been detected on a Winona County deer farm.
The Minnesota Board of Animal Health says it is the same farm where CWD was detected in November. A quarantine has been established and an investigation is continuing.
CWD is a fatal brain disease affecting deer, elk, and moose. Officials believe it is spread from one animal to another through direct contact and/or environmental contamination. Infectious prions can be spread via saliva, feces, urine, and other bodily fluids. Easting infected meat is not advised.
