Deer killed on deer farm because of CWD

Email

Sixty-four deer have been killed at a central Wisconsin hunting preserve after one of them tested positive for chronic wasting disease.

It was a 7-year-old doe, shot in September at the Alligator Creek Whitetails game farm near Junction City in Portage County.

State agriculture officials negotiated with the herd's owner, who will get payments to cover part of the deer's appraised value.
