Statewide Town Hall Meetings on Chronic Wasting Disease Scheduled for October

The Michigan departments of Natural Resources and Agriculture and Michigan State Univeristy Extension (MSUE) will hold a series of town hall meetings across the state priot to the firearm deer hunting season for the public to learn more about Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) and the state’s response plan to manage the disease.

The Marquette meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 23. The meeting will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Citizens Forum Room at Lakeview Arena, located at 401 E. Fair Ave. in Marquette.

Other meetings are scheduled for Kalamazoo (Oct. 22), Frankenmuth (Oct. 27), and Grayling (Oct. 29).

At all meetings, staff from the DNR and MDA will present information on CWD and the state’s emergency response plan for the disease. A question-and-answer session, facilitated by MSUE, will follow the presentations.

On Aug. 25, the DNR and MDA confirmed the state’s first case of CWD in a three-year-old privately-owned white-tailed deer in Kent County. It is still unknown how the animal became infected.

CWD is a fatal neurological disease that affects deer, elk and moose. Infected animals display abnormal behaviors, loss of bodily functions and a progressive weight loss. Current evidence suggests that the disease is transmitteed through infectious, self-multiplying proteins (prions). Prions are nromal cell proteins whose shape has been transofrmed, causing CWD. The disease is trasmitted by exposure to saliva of infected animals. Susceptible animals can also acquire CWD by eating feces from an infected animal, or soil contaminated by them. Once contaminated, soil is thought to remain a source of infection for many years, making CWD a particularly difficult disease to eradicate.
