LANSING, Mich. — Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) officials are visiting Wisconsin this week.

They are discussing how to manage Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) in the Midwest.

CWD attacks deer brains causing them to grow thin, act abnormally and eventually die.

Among other places, CWD has also been found in Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois and Minnesota.

At the conference, the Wisconsin DNR said these states need to come up with a regional approach to slowing the disease.

The conference ends Thursday and DNR officials are expected to release recommendations for improvement.
