WAUKESHA, WI (WTAQ) - The county just west of Milwaukee has had a second deer test positive for chronic wasting disease.

The DNR said Thursday that a three-and-a-half-year-old buck in Waukesha County was found to have the fatal brain disorder. That’s after a 9 to 12-year-old doe near Delafield tested positive for CWD earlier this year.

The latest infected animal was found wandering in a stupor in Wales on March 3rd, and a law enforcement officer put the deer out of its misery.

The two findings were the first in Waukesha County in 11 years of testing. They will not affect hunters’ restrictions in the county, since a ban on baiting and feeding deer had been imposed earlier.

The Delafield case caused similar bans to be imposed in neighboring Washington County.
