    Any 2019 CWD reports yet?

    We are over 7 months into the year. TB testing was at 339 a few weeks ago.

    I'll add that the above info is from post # 790 in that thread. Report from mid-July so an update might be out soon. Not likely any new positives in a county not already having a positive because the DNR will publicize that kind of news right away.

    The state's level of concern is about as low as the actual numbers found. Otherwise, they would have no interest in playing games with APRs in the county with the most confirmed cases. This pocket just happened to get found by random testing. Started with the only deer in Michigan that showed symptoms- the Meridian township deer. That core zone turned out to be a blip. Then a few other pockets were found in surrounding counties. Sharpshooters needlessly killed thousands more than CWD would have infected.
    The Jackson County pocket could turn up a few more, or a few hundred more cases, who knows. The U.P. zone is the same. There has been no actual testing to see what happens with live deer that have the disease. State says it is 100% fatal. What is the proof? EHD was not 100% fatal, but killed a heck of a lot more than CWD.

    Maybe because most deer get killed by hunters younger before CWD would kill them... it doesnt kill quickly like EHD.
