Sep 30, 2005 — The Department of Environmental Conservation held a meeting on chronic wasting disease in Potsdam last night. It's one in a series around the state to inform hunters about the fatal deer illness. CWD was discovered in 5 captive deer and 2 wild deer in central New York last spring. It was the first time the disease was discovered east of Wisconsin. As David Sommerstein reports, the turnout last night seems to indicate hunters aren't too worried.
