|Open House meetings, and information on chronic wasting disease, are scheduled this month in Brookfield and Milan. They are among six sessions scheduled by the Missouri department of conservation. |
Each open house will begin with a presentation on chronic wasting disease, and
the conservation departments' testing for the disease and cases found. Also to be discussed are management actions taken by conservation and what hunters, land owners
and others can do to help. Following the presentation, attendees can visit with conservation staff. One session will be held at 7 o'clock the night of August 20th at the Trinity Methodist Church in Brookfield. Another is August 29th, also at 7 pm, at the Milan high school. Other sessions this month are planned for Macon, Moberly, Kirksville, and Salisbury.
Missouri's first cases on chronic wasting disease were found in captive deer on private hunting preserves in Linn and Macon counties. 11 such reports have been verified since 2010. The conservaton department confirmed five cases of chronic wasting disease in FREE ranging deer around the Macon county preserve.
