RALEIGH — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is increasing its monitoring efforts for chronic wasting disease this deer season. Over the summer, Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources reported that a deer harvested just over 30 miles from the North Carolina border tested positive for CWD. It’s the closest case reported to date and prompted North Carolina wildlife officials to escalate proactive surveillance measures already in place, as well as introduce new monitoring initiatives.
