The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks will host a public meeting to discuss Chronic Wasting Disease at the Lovisa Auditorium on Hinds Community College, Vicksburg Campus on Monday, August 29, at 6:00 PM.

MDWFP biologists will present information on CWD management and sampling efforts and on special opportunities for properties within 3 miles of a CWD-positive detection.

As with previous seasons, MDWFP is relying on hunter-harvested deer to monitor CWD across Mississippi.
