The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says a deer in Waukesha County has tested positive for chronic wasting disease.
The agency says it's the first deer in the southeastern Wisconsin county to test positive for the mad-cow-like brain disease.
DNR area wildlife supervisor Tim Lizotte says the finding was not unexpected, since a CWD-positive deer was found 16 miles away in Jefferson County.
Part of Waukesha County is in the existing CWD Management Zone. A landowner in the Town of Delafield reported the sick-looking deer to the DNR.
The sampling result does not change the current management zone boundary. But since Washington County is within 10 miles of where the deer was found, a baiting and feeding ban will go into effect for Washington County before the 2013 deer season.
