Further testing confirmed the first suspected case of chronic wasting disease in Montana history.
The mule deer buck was shot in hunting district 510 south of Billings. After the first tissue sample was flagged as a suspected case a second sample was sent for evaluation at Colorado State University, according to a Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks news release.
The second sample also tested positive for the fatal disease carried by deer, elk and moose.
A second mule deer buck suspected of CWD infection was shot Nov. 5 near Belfry, also in hunting district 510.
