Chronic wasting disease tracked with new interactive map

MADISON, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  State officials have made it easier to keep track of chronic wasting disease, and the places where it's turning up in the deer population. The D-N-R has upgraded its online map which shows the harvest locations of all deer tested for the fatal brain disease, including those with positive results.

Map-users can check sampling data by town, county, or deer management unit. The map also has drawing tools in which hunters can find out their nearest locations of wild deer that were found to have C-W-D. The disease remains most prevalent in its established zone in southern Wisconsin.

29 cases have been confirmed there in 2013, and just one outside the zone.

To get to the new map, go to the D-N-R's Web site and write "CWD prevalence" in the search box.
