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.
Any results yet from the DNA testing.

I was kinda wondering about that myself.
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"

I just saw the press release. Not good but at least it is just a family group for now.

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?
