Jan 05, 2009 — To kick off the new year, we begin a new occasional series. It's called Story 2.0. We'll review stories our news team has filed in the past. Then we'll follow up with the people we interviewed to find out what's happened since. Today, chronic wasting disease. The fatal deer disease was discovered in two wild deer in Oneida County in April 2005. It was the first time it had been found east of Illinois. Wildlife officials were worried the disease would spread throughout the deer herd in New York and the Northeast. But so far, no new cases have been found. Chronic wasting disease has no known effect on people. All the same, it rattled some when it was discovered that one of the contaminated deer was served at the Verona Fire Department's sportsmen's dinner. David Sommerstein traveled to Verona for our story back in 2005. He updates the story with Martha Foley.
