Here is a good page on hemorrhagic fever.


Like Hunter Customs said the chronic wasting disease is a prion. It is a lot more of a concern, to me anyway, because there is no treatment for it. It appears to be nothing more than a mis shapen protein that replicates itself and has no DNA or RNA like a virus or bacteria and isn't even denatured by cooking it well. I don't know whether any person has ever gotten it from a deer, but I don't want any part of one. They say that you can't get hemorrhagic fever from eating a deer infected with it, buy I'm not going to eat one that shows any sign of disease, spots, hoof abnormalities or what not either.
