CWD testing leaves many unanswered questions April 10, 2011 Minnesota Disease Minneapolis Star Tribune

Though officials found no more deer with chronic wasting disease after sampling 1200 whitetails near Pine Island, Minn., over the winter, many questions remain. The biggest one: Are there other deer infected with the fatal brain disease roaming out ...

"Did it get into Elk Run [the farm where a captive elk herd was infected with CWD, and later destroyed] and get back out? I don't know. It's a valid theory. Did it come from Wisconsin [which has infected wild deer]? It's unlikely. The nearest infection is 150 miles away and it would have had to get across the [St. Croix] river."
