‘Zombie deer’ brain disease spreads to 24 US states & Canada… and increasingly threatens HUMANS

An incurable, mad-cow-like brain infection nicknamed “zombie deer disease” that causes deer, elk and moose to behave strangely and aggressively has spread through half the US – and some fear it may soon turn up in humans.

Chronic wasting disease (CWD) renders its victims uncoordinated, confused and aggressive, while also causing them to lose weight and – eventually – their lives, giving rise to the nickname “zombie deer disease.” Sick animals walk in repetitive patterns and lose all fear of humans, developing a vacant stare.

Like mad cow disease, CWD attacks the brain and spinal cord and is believed to be caused by prions, infectious proteins that travel in bodily fluids and remain contagious for years after leaving the body of their host. Also like mad cow disease, in its early days at least, some scientists have scoffed at the notion it can be transmitted to humans. Others see history repeating itself.

I think Nancy has been partaking of deer meat to act like she does.....same as Chuckiepoop!!!!

Offical park rangers don't care at all. In my island they are out to kill off Everything regardless, if it swims, flies, climbs, walks or runs it makes no difference to them. The forest is very silent these days and its not safe to eat eel from the creeks any more. There is not a problem with cwd so they use 1080 everywhere to do the job instead.
