In recent years, scientists have raised alarms about a condition known colloquially as “zombie deer disease,” and scientifically identified as Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD).

 This serious ailment affects free-ranging deer, elk, and moose, exhibiting symptoms such as weight loss, lack of coordination, listlessness, and drooling. What makes CWD particularly concerning is its slow onset, leading to a zombie-like appearance in infected animals.

Chronic Wasting Disease has been identified in the United States since 1967, initially discovered in Colorado. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirm that over the last few years, it has spread extensively. And has now been identified in at least 32 states across the country.

The most recent report of a new zombie case was in Kentucky in December 2023.
