    It's time to wake up to the fact that as testing increases it will be found in every county in the state.

    It's been here for a long time and the sky hasn't fallen, well until people started freaking out.

    This is sad but expected. I have no science to back this up but I believe this to be true also. I also believe that unless they find a cure or prevention methods that can be applied through food sources or minerals, there is nothing we can do about it.

    They think it’s been here for only around a decade-ish.

    Whatever modeling they use, be it DNA matching, prevalence rates, whatever. Smarter biologists at MSU figure that kind of stuff out. If you went to the CWD informational meetings, the biologists made that point pretty clear. It isn’t like TB where it’s been here for decades.

    This will no doubt expand the CWD zone map. My original suggestion was some 18-20 counties. We may end up closer to 18 yet.
