Researchers Detect CWD in Heart Muscle of Elk and White-tailed Deer

This is from a news release today from the University of Wyoming. It is interesting that the rouge prions don’t show up in in the hearts of mule deer.

There is of yet little evidence that CWD can jump from cervids to humans like mad cow did from cattle to humans. Nevertheless, I would be reluctant to eat venison from Wyoming or Colorado.
