Deer from Blaine County tests positive for CWD


November 16, 2018

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks said today that test results from three deer harvested in Blaine County have come back positive for chronic wasting disease.

The deer were harvested within the 2018 priority surveillance area, which includes the northern half of Blaine County.

FWP said Blaine County north of U.S. Highway 2 has been designated a CWD-positive area due to the test results.

Liberty County already had that designation after a deer harvested in the northern part of the county in 2017 tested positive and a deer harvested in southern Liberty County tested positive this month.
