UPDATE: SEPT. 2
Idaho Fish and Wildlife has confirmed positive cases of Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease (EHD) virus in samples taken from dead white-tail deer in the Clearwater area.
Officials believe the disease will spread until colder weather arrives in the region.
Warm, dry summer weather created ideal conditions for deer to gather near water sources and become victims of disease spreading biting gnats, according to Fish and Wildlife.
