CWD Reported in Deer Population in Wyandot County and Some Townships in Hardin and Marion Counties
Chronic Wasting Disease, or CWD, has been reported in the deer population in Wyandot County and some townships in Hardin and Marion Counties.
Ryan Kennedy from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Wildlife explains the disease, “It’s a fatal disease. It develops slowly in members of the deer family, which includes Elk, Moose, Caribou and of course our white-tailed deer. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), there’s no evidence that exists that CWD can spread to humans, pets, livestock or other animals outside the deer family.”
