I just heard today via word of mouth that apparently there are these bugs biting deer and the population is dying on Stone Mountain, North Carolina. A friends mom heard it on the news... but I can't find any information anywhere online. Is there anyone out there that can help me find this? Does anyone have any thoughts? Dicuss...

I read about the deer somewhere getting bit by something like noseeums and dying off. It may be the same place. They are dying off in Lower Michigan somewhere also from some sort disease passed from bugs I think.

here..read this..

is this what you are talking about?

Hemorrhagic disease results from an infectious virus transmitted by tiny biting flies or gnats known as midges, sand gnats, sand flies or no-see-ums. It is a fairly common disease of white-tailed deer in the southeastern United States, with outbreaks reported more frequently from August until October, when freezing weather dampens the midge population.

I was expecting to see a deer killing bugs with its hooves or tail.

That's too common, he had to show the bugs revenge for the deer killing their relatives.

Wow, I didn't realize it was so widespread... I hope it doesn't mutate or affect humans...

Google is your friend...it's all over the news...


RALEIGH, N.C. – At least 20 white-tailed deer have died in the area of Stone Mountain State Park in a suspected outbreak of hemorrhagic disease, the result of a virus that does not pose a danger to humans, according to the N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation.


It's biting gnats or midges...tiny biting flies...

Thanks
I guess I need to look up hemorrhagic disease... it sounds familiar. I hope this doesn't spread among humans or our food supplies...

This is a paranormal study if ive ever heard one


They're called Deer Ticks and you get Lyme's Disease if bitten by an affected one.

It's OK...at least you can tell your Mom they pose no threat to humans. She'll probably feel better after you do.

No, not that... that's not unusual. I'm used to hearing about that. In fact I've known people to have it. Thanks for the sarcasm though
*ahem* Constructive criticism is better than sarcasm...

Well, it does effect humans. Venison is a good emergency food. It is also a good source of high quality proteins and elastins for strong muscles. The drawback is the type of cholesterol in it can cause artery problems if overeaten. Anything that effects our foodchain effects humans. If this starts to effect our livestock we are in major trouble.

Hey, Y'all. I'm North Carolina born and bred...this thing isn't uncommon, we have cases of it every year. It seems that the media locally isn't taking as much of interest in it as the wider media view. hahah.
