That would be EHD, not CWD

Epizootic Hemmorhagic Disease (EHD) is different from Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) .... EHD is caused by biting gnats and also is called blue tongue....to date there have been no reported cases of CWD in NC....the NC legislature is gonna expand the no. of deer pens in the state, though, and is in the process of moving control of CWD from the WRC to the Ag Dept., which has NO ENFORCEMENT ARM and don't have the budget to cope with testing penned deer in NC....would somebody PLEEZ TELL ME what raising deer has to do with AGRICULTURE? .... if this ain't a political ploy by deer farmers to get more deer in NC eventually so they can MAKE MORE MONEY and have PAID OFF SOMEONE for the right to do this, I think I am a Vietnamese astronaut.
