DNR Gears-Up for CWD Fight

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has a plan to deal with deer in southeastern Minnesota which may have been subjected to Chronic Wasting Disease. 

A deer feeding ban is in place, and area landowners have been asked to participate in a deer sampling process.

Landowners who obtain shooting permits from the DNR will be authorized to take deer in a portion of southeastern Minnesota within roughly 10 miles of where a CWD positive wild deer was found near Pine Island.

Brainerd DNR Non Game Specialist Pam Perry tells KLKS News, this is a tough disease.  She says it is difficult to tells where an outbreak began, and eliminating it once a case has been reported.
CWD can be transmitted between elk and deer.
