DNR Urges Hunters to Protect UP from CWD

The Department of Natural Resources is raising awareness about a deadly deer disease. The DNR is urging hunters to help protect the Upper Peninsula from chronic wasting disease, or CWD.

CWD kills white tail deer, mule deer, elk and moose. It was detected earlier this year in free-ranging deer downstate near Lansing.

The DNR wants to educate hunters about restrictions on transporting deer this season in effort to keep the disease from spreading further north into the UP.
