The AGFC took tissue samples from the 4½-year-old female deer, which was found dead on March 2. The Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory in Madison confirmed the test late Monday. Earlier this month, another deer was found dead in Ponca. That deer also tested positive for CWD. The two deer are in addition to an elk killed during a hunt near Pruitt. All three locations are in northern Newton County near the Buffalo River. ..."The test area will expand as positive (CWD) tests warrant," said Cory Gray, AGFC deer program coordinator.
