Default Chronic Wasting Disease

KALISPELL - State wildlife officials report that a second moose has tested positive for chronic wasting disease (CWD) in northwest Montana.

A hunter harvested the bull moose during the last week of the general hunting season near Fawn Creek southeast of Libby within the existing CWD Management Zone, according to Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks.

FWP collected the sample from the moose Dec. 1 at the Libby Sampling Station on U.S. Highway 2 and submitted it for testing to the Veterinary Diagnostic Lab at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado.

The lab identified it to be suspected of CWD infection on Jan. 14 and confirmed the positive detection Jan. 17 with a second test.

CWD was first detected in the Libby area in the spring of 2019 after a white-tailed deer tested positive. FWP established the Libby CWD Management Zone and began surveillance efforts to identify the prevalence and distribution of the disease.

FWP reports that to date, 61 white-tailed deer, two moose and one mule deer have tested positive for CWD in the Libby area.

Hunters are recommended to not eat meat from animals known to be infected with CWD. Hunters in CWD areas are also advised to bone out their meat and to not consume those parts where prions likely accumulate.
