The Wyoming Game and Fish are once again seeking public comments on drafting the chronic wasting disease plan.

The neurological disease that effects deer, elk and moose was first detected in wild herds back in 1987. Comments will be accepted through April 1st.

“In an effort to better manage ungulates we want to continue to improve our understanding of  this disease,” said Scott Edberg, Deputy Chief of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s Wildlife Division. “The public and partner agencies gave us some good suggestions to make sure we have a strong plan and we appreciate that feedback. We hope people will be involved as we finalize the CWD plan.”

The proposal will be presented at the Game & Fish Commission meeting in Casper, April 21st through the 22nd.
