Bull elk

SPOONER– The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has been notified by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) that a captive elk on a captive elk farm in Burnett County tested positive for CWD.

That has triggered a ban on baiting and feeding in the area, prohibiting people from putting food out for deer and other wildlife. Hunters in the Washburn, Burnett, Polk, and Barron counties also are now banned from using bait.
