Mississippi: Up to 40 deer tested had deadly brain disease

In this March 1, 2019 file photo, deer run alongside rising water from the Yazoo River in Warren County, Miss. A deadly brain disease has been found in or is suspected in 40 Mississippi deer, and the state is asking hunters to continue providing samples through the deer season. “Deer harvest begins to tail off this time of the season. I hope we will get several hundred more before the season is over, if not a thousand or so,” Russ Walsh, wildlife chief of staff for the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks, said Thursday, Jan. 9, 2020.(AP Photo/Rogelio V.
