PORTAGE COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - The state DNR will update central Wisconsin residents this month on status of chronic wasting disease in the region.

Officials said a hunter shot a deer in Portage County last November which later tested positive for CWD. It was the first time that a deer in the wild had the fatal brain disease.

A captive deer on a Portage County game farm was also found to have CWD back in 2002.

The DNR will talk about the latest discovery, and what it means, at a meeting on February 19th at the Mead Wildlife Area north of Milladore.
