Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife officials say they have found more deer dead from adenovirus hemorrhagic disease than in the past. ODF&W spokesman Steven George says once a deer is exposed, there is nothing that can save it.  "What they're dying from is a disease called adenovirus hemorrhagic disease. It’s a disease specific to just deer. Pets, livestock do not get it, it kills most of the animals that are exposed to it. We had a major outbreak about 6-7 years ago at Crooked River Ranch." George says they encourage you not to feed the deer because the disease is passed to deer through nose to nose and saliva contact and so it will wipe out a congregating herd. He says a couple of months ago, they were finding about one to two dead deer every day in the Cove Palisades Park and Crooked River Ranch area, but the numbers are going down now.
