State agriculture officials say chronic wasting disease has been identified in two female deer in central Michigan.

The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development said Friday the deer were from a Mecosta County farm.

State officials say they are quarantining the farm and working with the farmer to test all deer from the herd.

It's the second time the neurological disease has been found in a farmed facility in Michigan.
