If they bothered testing I am willing to bet that this is more common than expected across the country as a whole not only in deer but birds also.

Saw that and wondered if there was an advisory for any domestic foods produced in the area. Meat or veggies.

This is a huge problem near military installations that regularly practice fire suppression.  PFAS were discovered in underground water near Clovis, NM.  All of the wells on a dairy located near the AFB were contaminated.  The dairy owner could not sell the milk or his cows.  Has been feeding them until they die of natural causes.  No relief in sight.

The Everglades National Park is one of the wildest places around.  The freshwater largemouth bass are full of naturally occurring mercury, so much so that the Park service has signs in the back country warning against eating them.  Sort of takes the wind out of all the clean natural food claims the outdoor shows tout nowadays...SelbyLowndes

Michigan has a great many bodies of water that have Mercury warnings including the entire Michigamme River watershed. There are many bodies of water with strict catch and release regulations on them due to high mercury levels others have size and consumption limits. There are more lakes and ponds in Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota

that are a long way from the "Clear, Clean" pristine image or reputation that so many of us bring to mind.

     There are far too many dangerous chemicals loose in this world's ecosystems, far,far too many.
