Québec officials hold another CWD information session, advise against feeding deer in yards or on properties

By James Morgan, The Review, December 5, 2018

An update on Québec’s first outbreak of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) was the topic of a public information meeting held in Pointe-au-Chêne last Thursday evening.

A previous session was held in Grenville in October, soon after the disease was found in a herd of domestic red deer, believed to be on a farm in Boileau.

The Pointe-au-Chêne session was more controlled than the earlier meeting, which had often turned raucous with shouting from the audience at the officials who were speaking.
