[Ed. – Apocalypse shortly. Right now it looks like the furthest west it goes is just west of the Rockies, in parts of Utah.  It’s mostly east of that.]

According to a recent post in the Daily Mail, a disease known as Chronic Waste Disease (CWD) commonly known as “Zombie Deer disease” has been reported in 24 US states and two Canadian provinces. The illness attacks the brain, spinal cord,and other tissues in deer, elk and moose. Ultimately before CWD kills the animal, they first start to lose weight rapidly. Additionally, their coordination becomes unbalanced, and they may become aggressive.

On their website, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claims that while CWD has not affected humans, there is a concern that people who come in contact with infected animals may potentially be at risk of infection. …

“Nationwide, the overall occurrence of CWD in free-ranging deer and elk is relatively low. However, in several locations where the disease is established, infection rates may exceed 10 percent (1 in 10), and localized infection rates of more than 25 percent (1 in 4) have been reported. …”
