E-M:/ Cost appproaching $1M for one deer with CWD

The testing costs stemming from a single case of chronic wasting disease in northern Kent County is fast approaching $1 million, according to state wildlife officials who reported Thursday on progress monitoring the disease and the firearm deer season.
So far, 7,999 deer statewide have tested free of chronic wasting disease, experts said. Testing was ordered after the fatal neurological disorder was found in a pen-raised deer at an Algoma Township farm.
