Michigan residents have until Friday to offer up comments to the state about Chronic Wasting disease. The disease is fatal to deer and could decimate the state’s white tail population if it continues to spread.

State officials say some 600 people have attended a series of public meetings so far this year to receive information from the state and to share their thoughts about CWD.

The final three meetings are planned this week.

One is scheduled in Gaylord tomorrow (Tuesday, May 1), in Newberry on Wednesday (May 2) and in Houghton on Thursday (May 3).

You can also leave comments on line by accessing the DNR's website.
