No confirmed CWD in North Carolina, wildlife officials say

From the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission

-- The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is alerting residents that the state currently has no confirmed cases of Chronic Wasting Disease in deer.

A newspaper erroneously reported a deer was diagnosed with CWD last week. A deer was tested for epizootic hemorrhagic disease, a more common infectious disease among white-tailed deer. The results have not been confirmed yet.

For more information on hemorrhagic disease,  visit  http://www.ncwildlife.org/Hunting/H_Hemorrhagic_Disease.htm .  Sick or dead deer should be reported to wildlife personnel by calling (919) 707-0050.  

The Commission tested about 1,400 deer for CWD this year, and no CWD was found.
