Wind River School students in the Bugs-n-Bones class learned how to collect Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) samples a few weeks ago from Wyoming Game & Fish. This is the school’s first year working with Wyoming Game & Fish on CWD samples, class teacher Dirk Gosnell shared.
This collaboration provides students with a platform to learn about Wyoming’s game and natural resources. As well as, establish a working relationship with Wyoming Game & Fish. “We want to give back to our community with quality workmanship, a positive relationship, and interaction,” Dirk explained.
Hunters wishing to have their deer tested can take the head to the school. Results will be provided directly to the hunter and Game & Fish will answer any questions regarding CWD.
