Group Wants Scientific Review for Wisconsin’s CWD Program

The Wisconsin Wildlife Federation on May 5 called for an independent scientific review of Wisconsin’s chronic wasting disease management program as well as stronger measures to prevent escapes of captive animals from deer farms. The items were among 11 CWD-related recommendations from the federation, an affiliation of 195 conservation clubs in the state.
The suggestions come in the wake of statements made April 25 by Gov. Scott Walker that Wisconsin should do more to combat the fatal deer disease. Walker directed the Department of Natural Resources to review its efforts, as well as recommendations of Rep. Chris Danou (D-Trempeleau) and Rep. Chris Milroy (D-South Range), to see what potential changes are supported by science and could help stop the spread of the disease.
