MADISON – An expert panel appointed by the state Natural Resources Board to review Wisconsin’s Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) Management Plan has submitted its report. The complete report is available for viewing on the Department of Natural Resources website at: Chronic Wasting Disease in Wisconsin.
DNR will review and consider the expert panel’s recommendations and will respond to the report after meeting with the panel chair and Natural Resources Board subcommittee on January 6, 2010. DNR thanks the experts for volunteering their time and expertise to help Wisconsin with its efforts to manage CWD now and in the future.
In August of 2009, the Wisconsin DNR submitted a proposed 5-year CWD Management Plan to the Natural Resources Board. The Board tabled the plan pending a review by a Board-appointed panel of six North American experts in the fields of wildlife disease and human dimensions.
