The State of Pennsylvania Issues New Rules Governing Chronic Wasting Disease Herd Certification Program

On October 9, the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture issued an order of General Quarantine for the entire Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  The order applies to “All persons or businesses that own or maintain[captive]elk, white-tailed deer, moose, mule deer, black-tailed deer, sika deer, red deer or hybrid” within Pennsylvania.  These individuals will have to enroll in either the Herd Certification Program or the Herd Monitoring Program.
