Positive CWD detections prompt baiting and feeding bans

Positive CWD detections in 2018 prompt baiting and feeding ban in Kenosha County

MADISON - Following positive test results for chronic wasting disease in wild whitetail deer during the 2018 deer hunting seasons, a baiting and feeding ban in Kenosha County will be effective Feb. 1, 2019.

DNR staff received notification of positive CWD test results for a wild deer in Illinois within 10 miles of the Wisconsin-Illinois border. State law requires that the Wisconsin DNR enact a ban on feeding and baiting of deer within a county or adjacent county within a 10-mile radius of a captive or free-roaming domestic or wild deer that tests positive for CWD or tuberculosis.

It is important to note that Kenosha County is already designated as CWD-affected due to prior CWD positive detections.

Department staff will continue surveillance near these CWD-positive detection locations. Collecting CWD samples is important for assessing the potential geographic distribution and prevalence of the disease.

CWD detections in 2018 will prompt baiting and feeding ban in Waushara and Wood counties and renew ban in Portage County

MADISON - Following positive test results for chronic wasting disease in wild and captive whitetail deer during the 2018 deer hunting seasons, a baiting and feeding ban in Waushara and Wood counties will be enacted, along with the renewal of a three-year ban Portage County, effective Feb. 1, 2019.

Two wild deer harvested in southern Portage County will initiate a two-year baiting and feeding ban in Waushara County, while CWD-positive detections at two Portage County captive deer farms will enact a two-year baiting and feeding ban in Wood County. State law requires that the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources enact a ban on feeding and baiting of deer within a county or adjacent county within a 10-mile radius of a captive or free-roaming domestic or wild deer that tests positive for CWD or tuberculosis.

It is important to note that Waushara, Wood and Portage counties are already designated as CWD-affected due to prior CWD positive detections. The DNR will continue surveillance near these CWD positive detection locations. Collecting CWD samples is important for assessing the potential geographic distribution and prevalence of the disease.
