SALT LAKE CITY -- More chronic wasting disease has been found in Utah deer, state wildlife agents announced on Wednesday.
The mule deer were taken by hunters in eastern Utah during the late-summer archery hunt. One came from Diamond Mountain north of Vernal and the other was shot in the La Sal Mountains east of Moab.
Chronic wasting disease is fatal for deer and elk, but it's never been proven that humans can contract it from game animals.
The disease was first found in Utah deer in February. So far, four deer have tested positive.
