117 positives the last time I checked.
The boys lead the girls 63-54. I don't know the number of tests for each, wish the DNR would make those numbers easily available so some meaning could come from 63 & 54.
59,870 tests from around the state. About .2% testing positive. Or 2 per 1000.

2 per 1,000 is statewide.
Montcalm county is 45 positive for 4,007 tested.
Since you posted the statewide number, I did the same to be consistent.
If the DNR supplied the number of tests for only the townships that had 1 or more of the 117 positives since 2015, I think that would be interesting and I would have posted that info.
There were 8 Montcalm Twps. that did not have a positive. What was the % of positives for the 12 that had at least 1 positive ? The 4 Twps. from Kent that complete the Core Area ?
Over the past 2 years, what township has had the highest % of positives ? Spencer out of Kent County or Sidney in Montcalm.
L & O
Did you happen to notice the data in less than a month?
More than 1 in every 6 deer tested positive in Montcalm county.
You sure that's not skewed because of confirmation took longer?
If only we had the # of tests by twp for 2018... here are the numbers for Montcalm/Kent 2017. ** last updated 2/2 Kent/Spencer had the highest prev. last yr (5.38%) but only 4+ this yr.
Whitmer should declare a state emergency and build a wall. The precedent has been set on a national level.
Yup, cwd in the upper and lower. One end of the state to the other, not surprised.
I had not seen this chart before. What did enter into the search bar to get to the info ?
Spencer Twp in Kent at 5.4% is eye-catching. So is 2.96% for the 4 Kent townships with CWD.
When the 2018 numbers are presented I expect both of those numbers to drop a good bit.
Thanks for posting.

Sorry, no link. I've been saving charts, maps, data etc. from DNR site, presentations, videos, etc. I found the test #'s by twp on a map view from Feb 2018. This might have been from a NRC update. DNR doesn't seem to be in favor of providing historical records. The only way to see trends has been to save the info and put it together.
Yes the Kent county number is only taking into account CWD twps. I can take a look to see if the map had test #'s for whole county. IF the 2018 test numbers by township are presented... might need to file an FOIA request.
I have the whole county numbers from Kent in '17. Kent county was around 1% in 2017 when considering the whole county. NRC presentation sounds right for that chart. Not sure why this could not be placed on their website for easy referral. I have a friend who has requested all of the other numbers....I think. Will post when stats become available.
Again, thanks for posting.

Build a wall where? You know there is CWD everywhere! Why are they not mass testing in Monroe or Livingston county?
Who are "they"? "They" starts with an individual decision to be accountable. Always.
Just like the proposed wall along the southern border but just on a smaller scale. Too late to close the gate now.
