The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food & Forestry (ODAFF) and Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation (ODWC) are implementing emergency measures to monitor and protect wildlife after an elk from a game farm tested positive for chronic wasting disease.
It happened in Lincoln County just north and east of Oklahoma City.
A two-year-old bull died of an injury and a post-death examination confirmed the positive result.
The only other CWD case was also on a game farm back in 1998.
ODAFF quarantined the farm and ODWC will test wild deer in the area for the presence of CWD.
