I seek a brief clarification from Professor More. He mentioned that a study in Michigan found that TB was escalating in deer in an area where there were no bovines and that the infection could not be related to bovines.

That shows that they were transmitting it among themselves. Can we say with certainty that they also have the same capacity to transmit it to bovines?
