Just a theory that perhaps deer eat meat. I've read that squirrels and rabbits eat meat rarely. I just read where hippos also eat meat. I am assuming any wild animal would eat whatever is available if they are hungry enough.

Scientists believe CWD proteins (prions) likely spread between animals through body fluids like feces, saliva, blood, or urine, either through direct contact or indirectly through environmental contamination of soil, food or water

Deers are known to jump fences and graze where ever it wants.

It's not surprising.

Between manure spreading,pasture harrowing.

It's in the realm of reason.

Food water soil as well as bodily fluids!
Just dont kiss someone who has the disease!

I truly doubt its just the deer that have this dsease and is most likely in the insects birds of any given area where there is a large number of contaminated prions material.

Also the wind blows dust around and humidity and moisture may spread the disease as well. If its in the food chain which I believe it could be we may be seeing the first baby steps of a horrific nightmare.

If your in one of the areas that the diseas is located I suggest you move.

I don't fall for fear mongering as you do. If it was that drastic, we would all be dead after all these years.

Bleach or fire can eliminate the disease.


The best way to control the spread of the prions is with the use of tic traps and tic repellent. Many farmers have employed the use of deer feeders that put tic repellent on deer when they eat.

Gee, I imediately thought of proteinases when I read this article. Mostly ones we can eat, like those found in papaya and pineapple and grapefruit. But evidently the prions are not degraded well by proteases. They have already investigated that. Of course, they would try to sell us an expensive proteinase, not the ten cent pill to treat the disease.

Here is an article about this I find interesting. Seems that some people with certain genetics are more susceptable than others to having this take hold, something to do with a variation of the prnp gene. biology-pages.info...

I was going to start crying "go vegan" but then I noticed this is rt.com. Prion disease is a threat but really, are you all so quick to believe whatever comes out of the maw of a known source for Russian psyops disinformation?

Puleeze. I thought we'd gotten a bit more sophisticated than to take this kind of bait so quickly.


Look up deer walking in circles, a ton of new videos.

Ok, I just had to look this up, as they call in Chronic wasting disease here in MI. After reading some of your posts, I got to wondering about transfer to other animals, like our dogs. While not very pleasant, dogs do eat deer poop.
I have wondered why it hasn't completely wiped out deer populations.
I just found this article though.
Which I think just proves that mother nature knows something.
