I hope not.  The strategy hasnt worked well in the other zones.  I believe if they quit testing for it, the number of cases will be reduced significantly.   LOL

im guessing it will show up outside the current areas eventually.  the good news is that given the history of the disease the concern for alberta is not as bad as first reported by srd.  still, it sure does suck to see it spreading out geographically.

I'm not particularly concerned about the spread of the disease. I am concerned about how SRD will react to it. It appears the culls have proven ineffective. I'm hoping that "management" practice is not repeated.

I fully agree with Doug. I don't think the cull has accomplished anything more than diminished opportunities for sportsmen in the East Central area. The only way for a cull to be effective is a 100 percent kill off. Otherwise its not truly a cull, its a feeble hope to slow the progression of CWD.

Looks to me like the cwd map is really becoming nothing more than a topographical map of deer routes, unfortunately.

What's the scoop in area's where cwd is completely ramant?  How common is it in the States, or in Saskatchewan?

Anyone know of elk testing? 

I'm still torn about cwd myself.  Part of me thinks it's nothing new, just was, "discovered" by a gov't scientist.  I"m sure all of us have in the past decided not to take an animal because it, "didn't look quite right".  Maybe I'm all wrong on that, I don't know, but it appears to me it's in the future of all our susceptible ungulate's no matter what's done.   :(

I see it has moved up to the Suffield block. I am sure it is in there and if so do to the rules in place it will go rampant in there in the Elk and Deer herds and never be eradicated. That place will turn in to be a CWD breeding ground.
