BISMARCK-- A disease that kills white-tailed deer has been found in cattle in Morton and Grant counties.

The disease commonly known as EHD was detected in deer in western North Dakota earlier this fall. It prompted state wildlife officials to suspend the sale of some remaining deer hunting licenses and to offer refunds to the holders of thousands of licenses already sold.

State Veterinarian Susan Keller says EHD now has been found in three cattle. She says that unlike deer, infected cattle usually recover. But she says ranchers should be aware of the symptoms, such as mouth sores and lameness.
