Sampling for CWD
Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) is an infectious and fatal disease with potential to negatively impact wild populations of cervids (elk, deer and moose) in Idaho. Idaho's neighbor states of Wyoming, Montana, and Utah have CWD. However, IDFG’s sampling program has not detected it in Idaho.
