Monroe County officials are not waiting for an onslaught of chronic wasting disease (CWD) to cross their county’s borders, instead they have opted to battle it head-on in a non-lethal way.
They are confronting CWD with rounds of information. One such informational shot came Aug. 19 at the Wilton American Legion Post 508 where 33 people attended a three-hour CWD summit, an educational event where Wisconsin DNR personnel, along with hunters and landowners, shared the latest information on the prion-based disease and what steps can be taken to slow its spread.
