Preliminary Chronic Wasting Disease Test Results Indicate Continued Spread

July 12, 2013

Wild Lands Advocate update, April/May 2013, by Wonnita Andrus. In late March 2013, Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development updated the 2012 Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) test results. Preliminary results have confirmed CWD in 35 members of the deer family (26 mule deer, 8 whitetailed deer, and one moose). This marks the first time CWD has been detected in moose in Canada.

It is my belief that Non-profit organizations like the Alberta Wilderness Association provide a clear framework that creates opportunities for Albertans to actively participate in the protection of their provinces resources.
