Five more deer have tested positive for chronic wasting disease (CWD) in Iowa. The new cases were all found in Pottawattamie County.

The first case of CWD was found in Davis County in July.

Four of the six deer to test positive came from a breeding facility in Cerro Gordo County. That facility has been placed under quarantine.
