Join Courtney Colley, CDW Communication Specialist, Pennsylvania Game Commission for Challenges Fighting an Incurable Deer Disease: Chronic Wasting Disease.  Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) is an always fatal neurodegenerative disease of cervids and was first detected in Pennsylvania in 2012. Since this discovery, the distribution of CWD in Pennsylvania has spread and will continue to spread without active management. This talk will review the history and current status of CWD, surveillance and management strategies for CWD, and challenges the Game Commission faces for future management of CWD.
