The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has confirmed two additional cases of chronic wasting disease in two wild mule deer found about 30 kilometres southeast of Oyen, Alberta. These deer were 2 out of 133 deer collected in response to the first case of CWD found in the wild and confirmed September 2.

Prior to these cases, no trace of CWD had been found in more than 6,000 wild deer and elk tested since 1996.
