GAME COMMISSION ANNOUNCES EHD CONFIRMED IN LAWRENCE COUNTY

Dr. Walter Cottrell, Pennsylvania Game Commission wildlife veterinarian, today announced that the test result from an adult male deer has confirmed that epizootic hemorrhagic disease (EHD) has been found in Lawrence County.

"Our Wildlife Conservation Officers, Land Managers and other field staff have been on the look out for evidence of EHD in wild deer," said Keith Harbaugh, Game Commission Northwest Region director. "We urge anyone finding dead deer or sick deer to contact our office with specific information.

"Fortunately, the weather has begun to cool, and we hopefully will soon have our first good frost, which is expected to kill the insects that are spreading the EHD virus."

The Northwest Region Office phone number is 814-432-3188, and serves the following counties: Butler, Clarion, Crawford, Erie, Forest, Jefferson, Lawrence, Mercer, Venango and Warren.
