10/22/2018- The first case of Chronic Wasting Disease has been confirmed in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The fatal nervous system disease was discovered in a deer killed in Waucedah Township in Dickinson County, about four miles from the Michigan-Wisconsin border. While more than 600 deer-damage permit, roadkill, and hunter-killed deer have been tested from Dickinson, Gogebic, Menominee, and Iron Counties this year alone, this is the first time CWD has been found in the UP. Immediate action to deal with the issue includes increasing testing and surveillance of a 10-mile core area centered on Waucedah Township .The Michigan DNR plans to test a minimum of 600 deer here to better determine if and how far the disease may have spread.
