How IT Affects And What Are The Effects
A strange and highly communicable disease is spreading among the deer population in Canada. According to health experts, CWD is a concern in at least two Canadian provinces—Alberta and Saskatchewan. This infection was first detected in the United States in the 1960s. Canada’s first case of CWD was detected on an elk farm in Saskatchewan in 1996 and spread to wild deer.
According to the CDC, the CWC could spread to people through the eating of infected deer or elk. This makes hunters vulnerable to the disease.They may contract the infection through improper handling of carcasses, which might lead to blood or brain matter entering the body through consumption of flesh.
Health experts say that CWD causes an infected animal to lose control of its brain. As per the symptoms listed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, the animals infected with CWD exhibit excessive salivation, lack of coordination, unusual behaviour, excessive urination, and weight loss.
