Per the DNRs press release it was less than a mile away. You can find the actual press release under the DNRs CWD emerging disease page.I may have missed it, but anyone know where the 2nd deer was found?
Never mind, found it: http://www.mlive.com/lansing-news/index.ssf/2015/07/second_michigan_deer_turns_up.html
Third deer confirmed this week with CWD, 5 yo doe. and...I was kinda wondering about that myself.
Thanks for the update. WRT to deer dynamics, what does "extended family" mean? I guess it's a doe and her fawns would be a near family? Maybe the offspring of doe sisters would be extended? Cousins maybe extended?Third deer confirmed this week with CWD, 5 yo doe. and...
"Genetic analyses carried out by Michigan State University’s Molecular Ecology Laboratory indicate that all three positive animals were related as part of an extended family"
