Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) is a deadly deer disease that has been found in northeast, central, and east-central Missouri. CWD has the potential to greatly reduce deer numbers, deer health, and deer hunting in Missouri. CWD could also hurt the many Missouri families and businesses that rely on deer hunting.

Join the Missouri Department of Conservation’s Wild Webcast: The Fight Against Chronic Wasting Disease on Thursday, Oct. 13, from 6-7 p.m. CST to learn from Department experts about Chronic Wasting Disease and how MDC is working with hunters and others to limit its spread.

MDC Wildlife Disease Biologist Jasmine Batten and MDC Wildlife Division Chief Jason Sumners will provide a brief presentation on Chronic Wasting Disease and then answer questions from webcast participants.
