Deer in a forest

Chronic Wasting Disease is a transmissible spongiform encephalopathy that affects deer species (whitetail, mule deer, elk, moose, caribou, etc). In simpler terms, it is a disease, capable of being spread between animals, that affects the brain by causing it to become ‘spongy’ as it degenerates. It does NOT turn deer into zombies!
