DNR Encourages Use of CWD Kiosk & Dumpster Programs
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 09/24/2020

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is asking hunters to utilize the Chronic Wasting Disease self-service kiosks and carcass disposal dumpsters to help monitor and slow the spread of CWD.

This year, the agency is looking for more volunteers to help grow the programs, bringing convenient CWD testing and proper carcass disposal options to even more hunters in Wisconsin.

"We know hunters want to participate in providing CWD sampling and proper carcass disposal options because the original idea for these two programs came from hunters themselves," said DNR Wildlife Specialist Amanda Kamps. "The AAK and AAD programs give more hunters convenient opportunities to participate in CWD management around the state."

Kamps says proper disposal of deer carcass waste is a major factor in containing the spread of CWD.

CWD is a contagious neurological disease of deer, elk moose and reindeer that is caused by an abnormal protein called a prion.
