      BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A second mule deer killed in south central North Dakota
      has tested positive for chronic wasting disease.
       Game and Fish Department wildlife veterinarian Dan Grove says the hunter shot
      the doe in western Grant County in November and submitted the head for testing
      as part of a state surveillance program for the fatal disease that strikes the
      nervous system in members of the deer family.
       
      CWD has long been present in wild and captive deer and elk in several states and
      Canadian provinces, but North Dakota had been free of the disease until a mule
      deer killed in Sioux County in the fall of 2009 tested positive. Wildlife
      officials have stepped up monitoring efforts among animals along the North
      Dakota-South Dakota border since then.
