This animation demonstrates the growing scourge of CWD in North America from 2006-2017. It took almost 4 decades from the first known instance of CWD to the starting point of this animation. What do you think it will look like 10 years from now?
Some areas (like Missouri) still have a low CWD prevalence—leaving open the window of opportunity for effective management. If we don’t free the professional wildlife managers to do their job, Missouri will join states like Wisconsin and Arkansas, who have significant infection rates.
