2017 CVM News: Cornell CVM, DEC collaborate to prevent return of Chronic Wasting Disease in New York

Other Titles

Abstract

The news item is about: There hasn’t been a case of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) in New York state since 2005, and the Wildlife Health Program (WHP) at Cornell’s College of Veterinary Medicine is trying to keep it that way. CWD attacks deer, moose and other cervids, causing neurological damage that results in abnormal behavior, loss of bodily functions, emaciation (“wasting”) and, eventually, death. It is highly contagious, passing from one animal to another through direct contact or indirectly from saliva, urine and feces. Cervids seem to have no immunity to CWD, and there is no vaccine, treatment or approved method of testing live animals.
