CWD found in city harvested deer

In an unexpected turn with the city of Buffalo’s deer management program, two of the deer harvested within city limits last week tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease.

Buffalo Police Chief Mike Chapman stated that the positive tests were a surprise and that the meat from the two deer will not be distributed to the public as planned.

“We had two deer that tested positive for chronic wasting and we will not be giving those deer away,” Chapman said. “They’re not going to be given to anybody.”

Federal plan would team up agencies for bat cure

With more than 1 million bats in the Northeast dead as a result of the still-mysterious White-Nose Syndrome, a federal plan has been hatched to unite resources across the nation for the development of a cure.

The plan outlines actions necessary for federal, state and tribal agencies to join forces against White-Nose Syndrome (WNS), a disease affecting hibernating bats and named for the white fungus that appears on the bats’ muzzle and other body parts.

It also provides an overall strategy for investigating WNS and managing its cause.
