CWD meetings are scheduled for Thursday, December 21st in Chester and in Havre. The meetings are set to explain the CWD that was recently discovered north of Chester. A background on the disease will be presented and FWP’s recently updated response plan will be discussed.
Here are the meeting schedules:
There are some preventative things you can do to keep CWD away from you and your family, even though there is no evidence it is transmissible to humans. Here is part of the release:
The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends hunters who have harvested a deer, elk, or moose from a known CWD-infected area have the animal tested prior to consuming it. If hunters harvest an animal that appears to be sick, the best thing to do is contact FWP and have the animal inspected. Some simple precautions should be taken when field dressing deer, elk or moose:
Wear rubber gloves and eye protection when field dressing.
Minimize the handling of brain and spinal tissues.
Wash hands and instruments thoroughly after field dressing is completed.
Avoid consuming brain, spinal cord, eyes, spleen, tonsils and lymph nodes of harvested animals. (Normal field dressing coupled with boning out of a carcass will essentially remove these parts.)
For more information on CWD and FWP’s response, please look online at fwp.mt.gov/CWD. You can email CWDresponse@mt.gov
