I have been following the CWD issue closely over the past few years. What are your thoughts on this?

Is it possible this is a natural occurring disorder (such as cancer)? is it ALWAYS fatal? do you think we are finding it because we are looking for it? Is WI overreacting?

Many people think game farms are to blame for the "spread" of this disease yet two incidents may disprove this
(1) Recently, a Mule Deer on the White Sands Missile range tested positive. There are no game farms in this area.

(2) CWD has been found in the wild Whitetail herd yet no domestic deer/elk have tested positive

What are your thoughts???????? :(
