Game and Parks: Disease infecting more than 100 deer in Nebraska


Associated Press - December 18, 2007 11:05 AM ET

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska Game and Parks officials say chronic wasting disease has infected more than 100 deer across the state.

Chronic wasting disease is a fatal condition that attacks the central nervous system of deer, moose and elk, and causes brain damage -- similar to mad cow disease.

Since 2000, biologists have tested 33,000 deer; 131 have tested positive for the disease. This year, biologists tested 3,400 deer, with 17 testing positive.

State wildlife biologist Richard Nelson says most of the positive results have come from deer in the Panhandle area.

Nelson says the disease is slowly spreading from Colorado to Wyoming and now through Nebraska.

So far, the disease has not posed a health problem to humans. Nelson says officials will continue to test and monitor free-ranging herds.
