I believe the deer in question in Medina County didn't even die from cwd. Apparently he jumped into the fence and broke his neck.

This is a very serious problem. 40 animal transfers have been made in Texas from what is now an identified CWD infected site. It is unclear as to whether any of those 40 locations made any animal transfers afterwards. Given the persistance of CWD in the environment (outside the host), and considering the large number of now suspected locations, it is likely that CWD will have a continuing presence in Texas. The ramifications of this would be quite extensive. Millions of dollars of deer will probably be killed, and if any evidence that the disease has spread beyond high fenced ranches in the whitetail population is found, then it is likely that we may see a ban on any kind of baiting for whitetail hunting in those regions (as is the case with Wisconsin).Not to mention the loss of whitetail deer as a food source in those areas.

I disagree. EHD is much more prevelant in the state. It kills thousands of deer a year, and has been around forever, and no one is freaking out over that. Colorado spent $80 million on how to stop CWD, and they figured out that it wasn't that big of a deal. Colorado now has 0 regulations on CWD. Heck, there are scientist at A&M that say CWD may not even be transferable to other deer.I think TPWD will try to use this as a way of getting more control of the deer breeding industry. Just do a little research for yourself on CWD, and try not to get your information from The Outdoor Channel.

I'm a Dr and I have a reasonably good understanding of prions, EHD, and CWD. There is certainly no shortage of literature and studies that demonstrate that CWD is definitely infectious among other deer and cloven hooved ungulates, but it is also being discovered that it can infect an ever growing list of other species. It has a larger reservoir that EHD, represented by these other species (including agriculture), and that is why there is increasing concern over it. Yes, EHD may be more virulent than CWD. But mortality with CWD is 100%. That coupled with it's persistance in the environment make it a serious concern.

So where exactly has there been a massive die of deer from CWD? From the disease, not from a state coming in and massacring hundreds or thousands of animals because one was sick.

CWD is a slow and horrible death that takes years. Many (maybe most) that have it were killed by humans in an attempt to stop it from spreading.

So your saying there have been 0 massive die offs from CWD? Sounds like state wildlife departments have killed about 100X more deer than CWD. So we are suppose to loose our minds over something that hasn't even shown it kills in large numbers. All this is, is a case of tpwd wanting to take down a multi billion dollar deer industry that it is envious of.
