Game & Fish To Vote on CWD Plan

by Jackson Hole Radio News

The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission will consider approving the Wyoming’s Chronic Wasting Disease Management Plan at their upcoming meeting in Rawlins in mid-July. The draft plan includes final recommendations from the CWD Working Group, the public and Wyoming Game and Fish Department. During the final input period, Game and Fish received 148 comments from the public and that feedback was incorporated into the draft. Many of the comments were directed toward feed ground management, which will be addressed later this year in a separate public process. If approved, the plan will be the starting point for Game and Fish to move forward with deer and elk management in the face of CWD. The meeting will be live-streamed online for those who cannot attend in-person.
