    That's definitely bad news if it's confirmed. It shows that the spread of the disease is relentless despite the diligence of provincial NR ministries. Studies,so far,have been unable to conclude that CWD is infectious to humans,BUT,there's no information that concludes it's not,either. Most hunters have no desire for them or their families to act as guinea pigs. The Ontario deer hunt may very well collapse,completely.

    Hopefully it can be contained to that particular farm, lets hope none of their captive white tails escape.

    For sure itís not a good thing and hopefully theyíre able to contain it. Might be premature and a stretch to say itís a bad thing for Ontario Deer or that the Ontario Deer hunt may very well collapse. IMO

    It always seems to be related to deer farms too. They should ban them all IMO.
    I've been following this for the last few days. Looks like they're going to cancel the deer hunt in those areas, although that seems quite premature as it's only been at this one farm so far. Strange how it made it to the slaughterhouse too, generally physical symptoms are evident in the animal.

    Wild game farms like fish farms should not exist.

    I thought we got rid of all of those many years ago in Ontario. WTH did they come from and more importantly,how?

    Hopefully they have something along the lines of high, double fence regulations and they were followed.

    I had a neighbour that had a Fallow Deer farm....used to keep about 100 deer in the enclosure. I hated the thought that it was more likely that CWD would develop in there and then spread to the wild deer on my property.

    Thankfully he finally shut down the operation and moved away.

    Stopping the Deer hunt in that area is stupid..they need to have a mandatory testing on a huge sampling of the local deer. Best way to do that is to closely monitor and test the deer harvested there.

    Here's an update with an interesting interview with Keith Munro at the bottom of the article. Mr. Munro is the same gentleman who presented his research in North Gower last week. He spoke about this topic during the presentation last week.
