Biologists Asking Motorists To Report Road-Killed Deer For Disease Research

LITTLE ROCK – Biologists are ramping up roadkill surveys for the next month and are asking all Arkansans to report any dead deer they see along roads and highways. Road-killed deer offer biologists a chance to monitor for chronic wasting disease throughout the state without the need to kill deer to obtain samples.

With the recent confirmation of a CWD-positive deer found in Mississippi, 45 miles from the southeastern corner of Arkansas, biologists are very hopeful that hunters and motorists in that area of the state will report any roadkill by calling 1-800-482-9262 as soon as possible.   MORE
