Island Deer Die Off
« on: June 19, 2021, 12:46:13 PM »

Twenty-two cases of fast-spreading deer disease confirmed on islands

A fast-spreading virus has killed at least 22 deer on ­Vancouver Island and several Gulf Islands since the beginning of the year, according to the ­province.

Last fall, the Ministry of ­Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development said it was tracking the outbreak of a deer disease after the deaths of about 60 deer on Galiano, Mayne and Parker islands.
