6. Not CWD

The decline is not due to Chronic Wasting Disease, the Cervid version of prion disease. CWD is not widespread among the deer herd in Minnesota, there has only been one free ranging deer found to test positive for CWD there. The problems that the moose in MN are facing is primarily due to parasitic infestation, although brain worm probably contributes to the overall mortality, as well.
