SPOONER, Wis (WSAU) Folks in northwest Wisconsin can get their questions about chronic wasting disease answered Monday night at a meeting in Spooner. That’s close to where a female deer was discovered to have the fatal brain disease last fall. It was the first time that a deer in the wild was found to have C-W-D in northern Wisconsin.
The doe was discovered on private land near Shell Lake in Washburn County. A panel of conservation and legal experts will discuss the matter and answer questions at tonight’s meeting, which begins at 7pm at the Spooner High School auditorium.
