History

An approximately 5-year-old free-ranging female white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) was harvested in Louisiana. The hunter reported that the deer was in poor body condition and had multiple nodular lesions present throughout the liver. Fresh samples of the liver, heart, lungs, spleen, and kidneys were obtained by a biologist from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and submitted to the Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study in Athens, Ga, for diagnostic evaluation.
