WISCONSIN NEWS ROUNDUP: September had the fewest traffic deaths for the month since the 1940's
A rare deer disease has infected some farm cattle in Wisconsin. State agriculture officials have confirmed two cases of epizootic hemorrhagic disease, or E-H-D. The disease is normally transmitted by black-flies and midges. State veterinarian Paul McGraw says it will continue to be a threat to cattle until there's a hard freeze that kills the insects. In the meantime, McGraw urges farmers to use insect control to keep the biting bugs away.
