What IS CWD?
We read & hear more about it everyday...CWD, or chronic wasting disease, is a contagious neurological disease that infects deer, elk & moose. Unfortunately, NO cure is known, & it's FATAL to infected animals. In fact, mule deer are thought to be the most susceptible species here in Montana, but moose, elk & white-tailed deer can all be infected. There'll be a public informational meeting ON CWD tonight (Thursday) here in Shelby. This evening's informational meeting's scheduled for 7 o'clock out at Marias River Electric in Shelby.. ALL are invited & more than welcome to attend.
