Chronic Wasting Disease
The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has announced its initial chronic wasting disease (CWD) response efforts were successful with the Agency sampling more than 2,700 deer for the disease in the CWD Management Zone with the assistance of hunters. “Thanks to the cooperation of hunters and efforts by Agency staff, we exceeded our sampling goals for the CWD Management Zone,” said Chuck Yoest, CWD Coordinator. “The information gathered from these efforts is critical to developing a successful long-term CWD management plan.” The CWD Management Zone, established in December, has grown to include eight southwest Tennessee counties. Statewide, TWRA was able to obtain samples from nearly 5,400 deer during the recent deer hunting seasons. All CWD positives found were harvested in Fayette, Hardeman, and Madison counties. It will be later in February for all the results from the samples to be received by the TWRA. Once the results are analyzed, final development of the long-term CWD management plan will be completed.
