According to Amery, Wis. veterinarian David Clausen, “Just because we love deer hunting, and deer have significant social and economic value in Wisconsin, CWD will do what CWD does. It will expand geographically and intensify in prevalence. It doesn’t matter if we approve or not, or if we find it inconvenient to our interests. Eventually, CWD will reduce deer populations, and probably cause broader ecological, landscape-wide consequences, not only in Wisconsin, but our neighboring states.”
