ATCP 10.46(12) (12)Escaped farm-raised deer.
ATCP 10.46(12)(a)1.1. A person keeping farm-raised deer shall report to the department whenever any of those farm-raised deer escapes to the wild. The person shall report the escape within 24 hours after the person knows or has reason to know of the escape. The report shall identify the species, age, sex, and any identification of the farm-raised deer that escaped, the location of the escape, the apparent date and time of the escape, the circumstances that resulted in the escape, and steps taken to prevent recurring escapes.
ATCP 10.46(12)(a)2. 2. A person keeping farm-raised deer shall be responsible for testing for chronic wasting disease in accordance with s. ATCP 10.52, any farm-raised deer that escapes from the keeper's herd.

The report shall include the date of the return and the apparent number of hours that elapsed between the escape and the return.
ATCP 10.46(12)(c) (c) Except as provided in par. (d), if an escaped farm-raised deer is returned to the herd more than 120 hours after it escapes, the herd loses any status that it may have had in a herd certification or herd status program under s. ATCP 10.49, 10.51, or 10.53, and is treated as a new addition to the herd.
ATCP 10.46(12)(d) (d) If a farm-raised deer escapes into a wild deer disease control area that the Wisconsin department of natural resources has designated by rule, and is returned to the herd more than 24 hours after the escape, it loses any status that it may have had in a herd certification or herd status program under s. ATCP 10.49, 10.51, or 10.53, and is treated as a new addition to the herd.
ATCP 10.46 Note Note: For example, if a farm-raised deer escapes into a chronic wasting disease management zone established by the department of natural resources under s. NR 10, and is returned to the herd more than 24 hours after the escape, it loses any status that it had under the chronic wasting disease herd status program (s. ATCP 10.53).

ATCP 10.46(13)(b) (b) The department shall, upon request, issue dead tags under par. (a) to persons holding valid farm-raised deer herd registration certificates under this section.
