A deer that died in Pennsylvania last month was confirmed as a casualty of chronic wasting disease, the first time CWD has been identified in Ohio’s neighboring state to the east.

The whitetail came from a captive herd in Adams County, which is where Gettysburg of Civil War renown is located. The county’s southern border touches Maryland.

The property in New Oxford, where the deer was kept, is quarantined. Also quarantined are farms in several adjacent counties where deer are kept.

To date, CWD has not been found in the wild population of Pennsylvania deer.
