NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency will host a public meeting to discuss Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) at the Bolivar Middle School gymnasium, located at 915 Pruitt Street, Bolivar, Tenn. The meeting is Tuesday, Jan. 8 at 7 p.m.

A short presentation will be made with any updates and planned monitoring activities in the areas. Following the presentation, TWRA staff, along with representatives from the Tennessee Department of Agriculture, will answer any questions from the public in regard to CWD.

CWD was recently confirmed in 13 deer in Fayette and Hardeman counties. On Dec. 20 in a special called meeting, the Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission voted to establish a CWD management zone, which also includes McNairy County as a CWD positive deer was confirmed within 10 miles of that county’s border.
