Wisconsin deer farm depopulated after CWD found in herd

A Wisconsin deer farm has been struck by chronic wasting disease. 

Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection officials say the farm in Taylor County had a six-year-old doe test positive for CWD last fall, and the farm was immediately quarantined, meaning no live animals or whole carcasses could leave the farm.

Two hundred thirty-eight deer were depopulated.  DATCP officials say 61 of them tested positive for the fatal, neurological disease.
