The New Jersey Dept. of Environmental Protection Division of Fish and Wildlife is again asking those who are out in the fields and woods of New Jersey to be alert for deer that may be affected by Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease (EHD) and to report any suspected cases to the Division.
Outbreaks typically begin in August; symptoms of EHD in deer may include difficulty standing, drooling, and/or emitting foam from the mouth or nose. EHD is not a public health issue and is not a cause for concern about human health.
For more information on the disease and where to report suspected cases, please visit http://www.njfishandwildlife.com/news/2014/ehd_alert14.htm on the Division’s website.
