Test Results for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) by State

Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) is a neurological disease from the family of diseases TSE transmissible spongiform encephalopathy. CWD has been found in both wild and captive deer and elk.

CWD has been found in Whitetail deer, mule deer, black-tailed deer, moose and elk.

A lot of states have implemented a testing program to help determine the reach of CWD. I have included a list states that have reported a positive CWD test or that I could find some sort of data as to how many test have been preformed.
