Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) is a deadly illness in white-tailed deer and other members of the deer family, called cervids.

The disease has been found in Missouri and is slowly spreading. MDC is working with conservation partners to find cases of CWD and limit its spread. CWD remains relatively rare in the state at this time.
