The Center for Disease Control has released a warning in regards to a “zombie” deer virus affecting deer in 24 states.

Chronic Wasting Disease is classified as a prion disease, a type of neurodegenerative disease that causes the infected animal’s brain to deteriorate. When this happens, the animal rapidly loses weight, has trouble moving and increasingly becomes more aggressive. CWD affects predominantly the cervid family of deer.

The good news is the disease is not transmittable to humans, although the CDC is investigating cases of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a disease very similar to CWD. Several hunters have reported feeling symptoms of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, following coming in contact with infected disease.

According to an official statement from the CDC, “To date, there have been no reported cases of CWD infection in people. However, animal studies suggest CWD poses a risk to some types of non-human primates, like monkeys, that eat meat from CWD-infected animals or come in contact with brain or body fluids from infected deer or elk. These studies raise concerns that there may also be a risk to people.”
