An initiative in the disease management area has already been launched. And this was found in the east part of the world, and now this is getting extended to different places altogether.

According to this particular disease management portal, a new kind of chronic disease has been discovered as a new problem that technically affects deer in Cumberland County. 

According to this report, it has been brought forward that the chronic wasting disease is likely to expand to other parts of the world, thereby affecting the wildlife. Both the male and the female deer were found in South Middleton Township.

The state gaming Commission also said in a press release that this Bacteria is expanding into the countries, and it is time for the government to take reactive steps with the help of which the problem can be avoided.

Compliance with all these kinds of rules is essential to reduce the rate of transmission of the disease. A lot of stringent regulations have been introduced to protect wildlife and humanity. The list of the vital regulations according to which certain activities have been prohibited has been given in the following way. 

  • First, it is illegal to remove or export any deer and even the different body parts of this animal from this area to any other part of the world, even if it is in domestic territory. 
  • It is entirely unlawful to use and even possess these animals’ urine extracts and utilize them for different purposes beyond the boundaries of the area in which it has been extracted. 
  • It is, directly and indirectly, illegal to feed these animals within the defined boundaries. They cannot be provided, so a sufficient distance between humans and animals must exist, mainly when a disease has already spread. 
  • It is also not feasible for the people to rehabilitate and protect the wildlife in any way they want to because it is the duty of the government.

The new boundary lines for this particular area follow a different route. This particular route is in the position to get extended from 143 North zone to South zone. This particular area has also extended equally in the East and West directions, and the intention has been to control the spread of the infection. The government has been taking care of almost every situation so that a case of outbreaks can be avoided. It is also necessary to mention that without demarcating proper boundaries, it would not be possible for the government to take control of the situation. 

This change has been brought only in 4 months because the last change was introduced in April, and since then, it has been for the second time that this new change is also being introduced. Many countries have acknowledged this effort and initiative, and it is expected to prevent the spread of chronic wasting disease. 


It has to be concluded that this is one of the most effective and efficient criteria with the help of which a considerable amount of utility can be developed. It is helpful and necessary to provide a greater flow of information so that the chances of recovery of the wild animals and the chances of getting affected by human beings are reduced to the bare minimum.
