Virginia Hunters Needed for Chronic Wasting Disease Surveillance and Management November 14, 2013

Virginia, Deer Disease News and Information Archive




    The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries would like to ask for your continued support in our surveillance and management of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD). Chronic wasting disease has been detected in Virginia in five deer killed less than one mile from the West Virginia state line. In addition the continued existence of the disease nearby in Hampshire and Hardy Counties, West Virginia, and Alleghany County, Maryland, remain a concern.
    As in the past, the entire CWD Containment Area is a mandatory sampling area for any deer killed on November 16, 23, and 30, 2013. Any deer, or at least the head and neck of any deer, killed in the Containment Area on these three days must be brought to a designated sampling station
