Presentation summary:
Chronic wasting disease (CWD) was initially discovered in mule deer in Colorado 50 years ago but was detected in Pennsylvania in 2012 in wild and captive white-tailed deer. How CWD is transmitted and how it found its way to Pennsylvania and surrounding states is open to great debate. We will delve into some of these possibilities on the origin of CWD and offer insight into current management of the disease in Pennsylvania.

Presented by: W. David Walter, Assistant Unit Leader, USGS Pennsylvania Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit, and Adjunct Assistant Professor of Wildlife Ecology
