Keeping deadly deer disease out of B.C.

They’re part of a public awareness campaign the provincial government has launched in an effort to keep a deadly disease out of the province. 

Chronic Wasting Disease has been killing deer, elk and moose in some areas of Alberta and Saskatchewan, and the Province wants to stop it from crossing the border. It can spread when a healthy animal comes into contact with an infected animal, infected tissue or soil contaminated by the protein. 

Hunters can still bring meat back to B.C., as well as hides, antlers, or parts of a skull if they have been treated to remove all tissue. For more information, click here.
