MUSKEGON (WKZO) -- The first cases of epizootic hemorrhagic disease in the state this fall have turned up in white-tailed deer in Muskegon County.

EHD is transmitted by gnats to the deer and kills them within eight to 36 hours.  The Department of Natural Resources does not expect the virus to be widespread this year.

EHD killed thousands of deer statewide last year, with the most deaths in west and southwest Michigan.
