The State Game Commission is taking action after three deer tested positive for chronic wasting disease.  Hunters killed the deer, two in Blair county the other from Bedford county.  The game commission is in the process of identifying the hunters and trying to narrow down the exact area where they were hunting.  However, at this point game officials aren’t too concerned with the findings.  The commission says they sampled well over 43,000 deer, found three deer so at this point there is no reason to overreact.
