Wisconsin’s Monroe County summit brings CWD info to hunters

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.
