Hunters and landowners are urged to report suspected cases of EHD in white tailed deer to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. EHD stands for Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease, which can kill deer. Infected animals develop a high fever says DNR Spokesperson Ed Cross.
55 cases in deer have been reported so far this year. Anyone who spots a suspected case is asked to email Doug Dufford at firstname.lastname@example.org
