If you follow the yellow brick road to Kansas, you may not find the dreamlike place many thought when it comes to hunting deer. Suspicions were confirmed when tests conducted on a doe shot and killed in the northwest portion of the state this fall, tested positive for CWD.

The disease had been diagnosed in Colorado within a few miles of the Colorado-Kansas state border and wildlife officials believed it would be only a matter of time and they were right.

This is the first known case in that state found in wild deer.
