Although Chronic Wasting Disease hasn't been found anywhere in the state, 
Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency isn't going to quit looking for it anytime 
soon. 
TWRA biologists and technicians plan on collecting 2,000 to 3,000 tissue 
samples from Tennessee deer this year and have already collected 1,800. The 
samples, which are taken from the brain stem, are being collected from checking 
stations, meat processors and wildlife management areas.

"As custodians of the planet it is our responsibility to deal with all 
species with kindness, love, and compassion. That these animals suffer through human 
cruelty is beyond understanding. Please help to stop this madness."
