Deer Test Positive For CWD In Marquette County

25-Jan-2020

The Wisconsin DNR has confirmed that a wild deer tested positive for chronic wasting disease (CWD) in Buffalo Township in Marquette County. 


The CWD-positive deer was an adult doe harvested during the 2019 nine-day gun deer season and was tested as part of the DNR's disease surveillance efforts. This is the second wild deer that tested positive for CWD in Marquette County, and its location is also within 10 miles of adjacent Green Lake and Columbia counties. 


State law requires that the DNR enact a ban on baiting and feeding of deer in counties or portions of counties within a 10-mile radius of a wild or farm-raised deer that tests positive for CWD or tuberculosis. The new CWD-positive detection will renew a three-year baiting and feeding ban in Marquette County and a two-year ban in Green Lake County. Columbia County will renew a three-year ban.
