No Evidence of CWD in Maine Deer

Once again, Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife experts have found no evidence of the fatal chronic wasting disease in any of the deer tested. Brain tissues were sent to a federal lab in Connecticut for testing and all results came back negative.

Maine wildlife biologists spend many hours in the field observing deer and they also report they have seen no visible indications either. All licensed deer and elk farms in Maine are tested all the time and there remains no cases.

This is good news for Maine, its wildlife, and economy, as sometimes reports of the disease can have a very negative affect on hunting related businesses.

You can read the whole report release from MDIF&W in the Maine Hunting Today news section.
