In 2002, a farm in the town of Almond had the highest incidence of CWD-positive deer of any farm in North America. According to reports, the property known as Hall farms had 82 deer test positive for CWD between 2002 and 2005.  The Department of Agriculture shot the entire deer herd and the state of Wisconsin bought the farm in 2011. There are reports as many as 40 deer escaped from the farm through a hole cut in the fence surrounding the property... The DNR has a wildlife management ... will meet with the Natural Resources Board in February to discuss the state’s CWD strategy.
