List of Chronic Wasting Disease Quarantined Deer Farms Expand

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture has expanded its list of captive deer farms under quarantine due to Chronic Wasting Disease.  The agriculture department confirmed first positive case of CDW in early October when a captive deer died on a farm in Adams County. Chronic Wasting Disease is fatal disease that attacks the brain in deer, elk and moose, but there is no evidence that CWD can be transmitted to humans according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
