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: https://centredailytimes.org/armenia/researchers-claim-cure-deadly-deer-elk-disease-04200664 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.
