This is not good news. But, according to the Detroit News, it looks like the DNR was ready for it. A whitetail doe found wandering in Haslett last month and then put down, has been found to be Michigan's first case of a wild deer with chronic wasting disease. The previous case in Michigan, in 2008, was an animal at a fenced deer breeding farm in Kent County. That case caused the DNR to ban baiting in the Lower Peninsula for four years.

What does this mean for hunters in Michigan? Right now, not much - and the only counties affected are Ingham, Clinton and Shiawassee. Hopefully it stays that way.
