Along the Saskatchewan border four new cases were detected among the culled deer.

Totally about eight CWD cases have been confirmed in Alberta since September.

Sustainable Resources Minister David Coutts said that all is being done to combat the disease.

It is considered as a serious environmental and economic threat.

He has also promised to modify and enhance the management programs and keep the system updated as and when new information about the disease is made available.
