Attention Virus is killing deer in Indiana and Kentucky

Postby elklover » Mon Sep 24, 2012 1:05 am

A virus plaguing whitetail deer herds likely has spread to more than 40 Indiana counties and at least a couple in Kentucky. But biologists say hunters and outdoor enthusiasts shouldn’t be worried about catching the disease.

Biologists at the Indiana Department of Natural Resources recently received lab-test results confirming their suspicions that the state’s deer have increasingly been dying from epizootic hemorrhagic disease, a nasty virus that can be fatal to deer.

One case was confirmed in Franklin County in July and a second case was confirmed on Friday in McCreary County.
