I heard about this for the first time at the local DNR listening post last month. LDPV is an acronym for Lymphoproliferative Disease Virus. It is a disease of wild turkeys. Link to a very brief overview of LPDV: https://www.pgc.pa.gov/Wildlife/Wildlife-RelatedDiseases/Pages/LymphoproliferativeDisease.aspx There is a study being conducted by the Iowa DNR and Iowa State University to establish the prevalence of LDPV in Iowa. Link to the study site: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSePEBR5CHirpQFiEGqHVzEYQgU1BSTMA1O4Zq7YLJJ0X-NZBw/viewform I was asking the state wildlife vet about it at the deer classic. She said they need a part of the scaly portion of the leg. I asked about the spur and she said if you cut out the spur send the remaining scaly parts of the leg in. They look at the bone marrow. There is a bill in the House that is stuck in politics that would help detect new diseases such as this one in wild animals in Iowa. Link to that thread: https://www.iowawhitetail.com/forum/threads/animal-disease-bill-hf-2240.59460/ Has anybody seen this disease in Iowa?
