Efforts are maintained to avoid transmission of the disease in the natural environment and its spread elsewhere in Québec. As of the 2022 season, registration is mandatory at designated stations for all white-tailed deer. Mandatory sampling and restrictions on the transportation of cervid anatomical parts remain in effect.
Your collaboration is essential to maintain a low deer density and obtain a sufficient number of samples for an efficient surveillance within a 45 km radius from where the CWD was detected in 2018.
The following scenarios illustrate some offences to the regulations in force in 2022. These examples will give you a better understanding of the different intervention areas and the measures associated with them.
Situation 1 - Transportation restriction in the 45 km radius
During the hunting season, Catherine shot a white-tailed deer fawn behind her cottage in Boileau, Outaouais. Catherine held a antlerless deer licence for hunting zone 10 East-ESA, which she then affixed to the animal. She went to the registration station Sports N.P. Enr. in Saint-André-Avellin to register her animal. Catherine then went to a butcher shop near her home, in Boisbriand, to have her game butchered.
