Lone Star Outdoors Show
This weekend, TDA member Dr. Joe Ables talks about CWD and what impact that test is having on the whitetail industry in Texas.
As many of you are aware, last week it came out that the first ever positive test for Chronic Wasting Disorder was found in a Texas whitetail deer. Coming up on this weekend’s broadcast we will visit with Dr. Joe Ables regarding CWD and what impact that test is having on the whitetail industry in Texas. We also get his take on TPWD’s plans to eradicate the entire herd at that breeding facility in Medina County.
Does he think Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Texas Animal Health Commissionhave handled the situation appropriately? We also get his medical opinion on how contagious CWD really is verses the perception that exists. (Dr. Ables is one of the most respected whitetail veterinarians in the country and has done extensive work creating a cure for another cervid specific disease in EHD).
