Department of Natural Resources Deer, Elk and Moose Specialist, Chad Stewart, tells WDET’s Amy Miller that some of the changes are attempts to control Bovine Tuberculosis, a deadly bacterial infection that can also spread to cattle, and Chronic Wasting Disease, a neurological infection similar to “mad cow disease”. Stewart says expanding antler restrictions from 12 to 18 counties is also on the list of proposed changes.
