Chronic Wasting Disease Enivronmental Assessment - Request for Public Comment
Fish & Wildlife Diseases - 11/19/2013

his environmental assessment (EA) evaluates potential effects on the natural and human environment from actions proposed by the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife & Parks intended to prevent and/or control Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) in Montana’s free-ranging deer and elk populations. Any actions taken, or any actions not taken per the “no action alternative,” have the potential to affect wildlife populations as well as the economic, agricultural, environmental and social issues directly tied to those wildlife populations. This document represents a coordinated effort using the peer-reviewed science currently available to state and federal agencies and their scientific staffs in the development of a CWD management plan for the state of Montana.
