      MADISON, Wis. (Reuters) - The deaths of three Wisconsin hunters in
      the 1990s who shared a taste for wild game are being investigated for
      any connection to a fatal brain disease afflicting the state's deer
      herd, health authorities said on Wednesday.

      Scientists from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
      in Atlanta have agreed to help Wisconsin investigate the deaths, two
      of which were from Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a rare disorder that
      has been tied in Europe to eating meat from cattle infected with mad
      cow disease.
