CWD the topic of meeting in Embrun

By James Morgan, The Review, October 30, 2018

Wildlife conservation officials and hunter’s organizations in Ontario are trying to increase awareness about Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) and educate hunters about what they can do to prevent an outbreak in the province.

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF), the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH), and the Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA) hosted a CWD information session in Embrun on Sunday, October 28 at the Community Centre. About 20 people attended.

Keith Fowler, QDMA President for the Rideau-St. Lawrence area, said local hunters started asking questions about CWD once they heard of the outbreak nearby in Québec. QDMA is a not-for-profit organization of hunters who are involved with the management of sustainable whitetail deer populations.
