Thread: Nightmare in Norway.

  1. #1

    Nightmare in Norway.

    CWD has been found in free ranging reindeer in Southern Norway. This is the first confirmed case in Europe. Hopefully all necessary resources are poured into finding a way to abate its spread.

    Thanks for the head's-up. Worth posting this link again for information: http://www.gov.scot/resource/0042/00429803.pdf

    Anyone who travels abroad to hunt in areas with CWD needs to think very carefully about bio-security.

    At first glance I was thinking 'Chinese water deer' free ranging in Norway. What's the crisis...'

    Then the the penny dropped. Not good at all. As you say, for those travelling, serious attention to bio security needs to be given.
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    How is it spread from one animal to another?

    JTO..

    One theory is faecal matter....other deer eating grass contaminated with infected poo. Also direct contact with diseased animals, carcases and unburied gralloch.

    No recorded incidence of cervid to human transmission

    Scrapie sheep are also a potential source.

    The consequences if this gets hold in europe are grim to say the least. I hope they do find a way to get it under control asap.
