TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - As dry conditions persist, our wildlife continues to be most affected.
Indiana Conservation Officers say deer rely on our lakes and ponds more often in the drought to stay hydrated.
During August and September, Midge flies are found near the shores and infect the deer with EHD, or Bluetongue disease.
The result usually means illness and shortly after, death.
"It affects the way the hooves look on the deer when they come into the deer check station, and sometimes they will survive it, but most of the time, it's fatal," Indiana Conservation Officer Max Winchell said.
Symptoms include a high fever, swollen head, neck, tongue, or eyelids.
EHD does not infect people.
Historically, cases were worse in years with a drought.
