THE ROLE OF SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT IN PROTECTING
MISSOURI'S WHITE-TAILED DEER
(30 minutes)

Solid Waste management is crucial to protecting Missouri’s White-tailed Deer herd.  Chronic wasting disease (CWD) is an emerging disease that threatens the long-term sustainability and health of this important resource. This talk will explore the known science regarding the disease itself as well as what is known about prion migration in the solid waste stream. Risk concerns from the solid waste perspective will be examined as well as the broader context of why white-tailed deer matter. First detected in confined deer in Northeast Missouri in 2010 and wild deer in 2012, the disease has now been detected in sixteen counties throughout the state. Wildlife managers believe addressing carcass disposal concerns is critical to slowing the spread of CWD in Missouri and beyond.

Presenter:  Jasmine Batten, Supervisor of Wildlife Health Program, Missouri Department of Conservation
