Southwest Ohio deer disease
(WYSO) - Deer in southwest Ohio are dealing with a deadly disease. And, unfortunately, biologists say it won’t go away until we get our first frost. Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease or EHD has been confirmed this year in most counties in the Miami Valley. Mike Tonkovich is the Deer Program Administrator with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. “Quite frankly, there's probably more that we don't know about this disease than we do know.”
Here’s what we know:
- EHD is transmitted by the bite of small insects called midges.
- EHD is not dangerous to humans. (Example: You can eat venison from an animal that had EHD)
- EHD does not pose a serious risk to the health of livestock or pets. But it does kill a lot of Deer. It causes severe dehydration and many of the deer who get it die within 36 hours of the onset of symptoms.
Tonkovich says counties that get hit hard may have to decrease the number of deer hunters are allowed to harvest this fall. He also says it’s important to report dead deer to the ODNR on their website.
