Michigan: Deer & Cattle tbc

CHEBOYGAN COUNTY -- Wildlife officials are on high alert in Cheboygan County after a deer tests positive for tuberculosis.
The 3 1/2 year old doe was located in the southeastern corner of the county.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment will test at least 300 deer within a 10 mile radius by the end of the year.
This "circle" testing will be in effect for at least 5 years after the last TB positive deer is found on surveillance.
Last month a cattle herd tested positive for tuberculosis in Emmet County. As a result, all cattle herds within a ten mile radius has to be tested in the next six months.
