    Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) affects deer and elk herds. They have thought it was caused by a bacteria or parasite for years now, but researchers claim they think they have found a cure for it.

    Info in the link below:

    excerpt:

    a doctor at LSU has identified a previously unknown bacterium that causes CWD, mainly in deer and elk, which the group says poses a devastating threat to all wildlife.

    Within the next three years, they also plan to release vaccines to help both captive and wild deer populations.

    Let's hope this isn't how the zombie apocalypse starts.

    Here's hoping they have CWD figured out. It took a while but it's here too.
