Date: 3/2/17 7:08 am From: Judy & Don <9waterfall9...> Subject: CWD public meeting
Following my post about eagles consuming the carcass of a deer that possibly died of CWD - and there are many unobserved cases of this scavenging behavior based on the number of CWD deaths in NW Arkansas alone - Barry Haas asked about disease transmission to eagles and vultures, etc. The most recent understanding I had been given by an AGFC agent was that the disease was only transmissible to other corvids. So this week I inquired about the latest findings on CWD and scavengers, specifically raptors and other avians, as well as other non-cervid animals. I received this info from the manager of the Elk Center in Ponca. Whatever is shared in this upcoming meeting should soon be available on the AGFC website.

> The public meeting will be at 6pm on March 14th at the Carroll Electric building in Jasper. I sent an email to Little Rock asking if a video will be available on the website, or even live streamed, but haven't had a response yet. Will let you know.
