WGFD Finds More Chronic Wasting Disease

A new case of Chronic Wasting Disease has been found in a cow elk, near Bear Creek, 5 miles southeast of the town of Elk Mountain, according to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. This was elk hunt area 11 which overlaps with a deer hunt area that had documented CWD previously. People should not eat animals that have CWD, according to both the Centers for Disease Control and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. Hunters who would like to have their dear, elk or moose tested can contact the Wyoming State Veterinary Lab at (308) 766-9925. It can take a few weeks to get the results.
