SHERIDAN - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department recently euthanized a white-tailed deer exhibiting signs of chronic wasting disease (CWD). The deer tested positive for CWD, which is a fatal neurological disease of deer, elk and moose. The white-tailed deer was found in deer hunt area 24 - an area flanked on three sides by deer hunt areas where CWD was previously documented.
The buck was euthanized by Game and Fish personnel on November 16, 2016 about 2.5 miles southwest of the town of Big Horn.
