The Wisconsin DNR is confirming that two wild deer in Monroe County tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease during the fall 2021 hunting season. The two deer were adult bucks harvested in Ridgeville and Glendale, and are the first wild cases of CWD in the county. As a result of the findings and required by state law, the DNR is enacting a three year baiting and feeding ban in Monroe County and a two year ban on baiting and feeding in adjacent counties that are within 10 miles of the CWD detection. The DNR will be holding a virtual informational meeting to discuss CWD in Monroe County on February 3rd.
