Ontario hunters and anyone closer to nature this weekend are being asked to be on the lookout for deer exhibiting symptoms of EHD, or epizootic hemorrhagic disease, an infection wildlife officials are trying to track.

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry issued an advisory Wednesday after the discovery of two dead male deer on a property in London, Ont., on Sept. 12.

These are the first confirmed cases in Ontario of EHD, an infection often fatal in white-tailed deer, according to ministry spokesperson Jolanta Kowalski.
