DNR needs deer for chronic wasting study

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL)-- The Iowa Department of Natural Resources wants hunters to donate their deer heads to test for chronic wasting disease.

Chronic wasting disease has been found in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Missouri but not yet in Iowa. Chronic wasting can be fatal to deer.

The state deer biologist hopes to collect deer heads from all 99 counties, but the department is most interested in counties bordering states where the disease has been found.
