FDL County Under Deer Baiting And Feeding Ban

Because a captive deer in Washington County tested positive for CWD in early March the state’s Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection has established baiting and feeding bans for Washington, Sheboygan and Fond du Lac counties. The bans took effect Monday. The ban for Washington County will be enacted for three years. Because Fond du Lac County is adjacent to a county with a CWD positive test result, a two-year ban will be enacted. Sheboygan County is already under a baiting and feeding ban and that ban will be renewed with this newest detection.
