Michigan Warns Hunters Bovine Tuberculosis Found In Deer & It’s Dangerous To Humans

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is issuing a warning to hunters after bovine tuberculosis was discovered in deer. The disease originated in cattle and is a devastating bacterial infection which affects the lungs of the animal.

According to The Hunting News, bovine tuberculosis started in domesticated cattle and is caused by the bacteria M. bovis. It is a nasty infection which primarily attacks the lungs of the infected animal causing whitish lesions to appear on the inside of the animal’s chest cavity. It isn’t strictly limited to cattle either.

Bovine tuberculosis has been discovered in coyotes, wild boar, raccoons, and opossums. And of course, now deer. The disease has shown up in white-tailed deer and elk in areas that are avid hunting grounds: Michigan, Minnesota, and Indiana. So it’s no wonder that KTXS reported on the official government warning.  Authorities are asking hunters to be aware of the disease and the possibility that an animal they kill may be infected with the bacteria.

The following is an image of the inside of an infected deer’s ribcage.  This is what hunters need to look out for:

 The Michigan DNR also pointed out that the infected animals can spread bovine tuberculosis through saliva, coughing, and sneezing, in exactly the same ways that humans spread their own illnesses and infections. And although bovine tuberculosis does pose a threat to humans and at least one hunter has contracted it, the number of deer infected appears to be statistically very small.

Anyone who comes in contact with the bodily fluid of an infected deer can become sick.  This doesn’t mean the risk is huge, but it’s something hunters need to be aware of before consuming the meat. Ensuring that the meat of an infected deer is cooked to at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit, will also ensure the death of numerous kinds of bacteria, including those that cause bovine tuberculosis. Safe handling of infected should also take place beforehand for the hunter to avoid infection.

    What about the number of factory-farmed bovines infected, since we are making underhanded statements, about whose meat is more dirty.

  2. Yuk !!! That is disgusting! Please, pass the salt.


  3. I live in northern Michigan in the last 10 years I’ve heard about maybe 5 total dear with tb and I work at a gunsmithing and outfitters shop so we here about alot of bucks.

    Is it a man made lab created disease

      Probably been the Monsanto sprayed GMO Frankenstein CORN being grown in the fields that the deer are eating.

      The deer in the photo looks more like a Florida deer. The deer up in Wisc and Michigan look much larger and defined and their heard are shaped somewhat heartier and larger. Regular folks who have not a clue, have been duped.

        Also the photo of the alleged deer gut, is not a photo of a deer at all. Look at the skin below the cut mark of the opening and it looks more like a Manatee gray skin. Where is the deer hair on the edge of the chest cavity opening? This gut photo is not even of a deer. WTF Mac?

        I think this article is a fraud and misrepresentation.

    “The following is an image of the inside of an infected deer’s ribcage.”

    Want to look it up? You can’t un-see it.

    In the advanced stages, as best I can tell, it’s a snotty, sickly animal. You don’t want to share air with that.

    Good enough reason to stop mounting deer

  7. madtxn says:

    chronic wasting disease, mad cow disease, and many others, why are such detrimental issues becoming so prevalent? dementia/alzheimers is the 6th leading cause of death with over 5 million affected. autism rates are off the charts. sure seems something sinister is going on.

      m said, “why are such detrimental issues becoming so prevalent?”

      Those used to be the poor people, would have been put in service professions, when life was short, stupid, and cruel, like the unfortunate animals, which were put to use, in nature.

    I cant count the many deer i have made meet my table, many as i also come from a hunting family , so more then just me out there culling the herd ..I have never seen anything like that in any of mine, friends or families deer

    strange they would call it a bovine disease , than say its being found in animals that are very much not bovine ..I guess im having a hard time calling this truth yet

  9. It’s a fake news article to spread fear so peepers will not be inclined to be self sufficient. The last think the gov wants is self sufficiency. They do not want people living in rural areas because they can not be controlled.

    My family consumes a large amount of deer meat. Last year my son and I put 11 in the walk-in box I have in my shop. When I field dress mine I always look at the liver to tell me if the animal was healthy. I have seen and put down a few deer who appeared sick (emaciated) and left them for the buzzards. This new crap won’t stop me. We got so many deer where I hunt I’m allowed to take a total of 30 during firearms, muzzle loader and bow season.
