189.1 Findings and purpose.
The Department of Environmental Conservation hereby finds that chronic wasting disease, a fatal transmissible neurodegenerative disease which endangers the health and welfare of wildlife populations and captive cervids, has been confirmed to exist in New York State. The nature of chronic wasting disease requires prompt and extraordinary actions to address the threat posed by this disease. The purpose of this rule is to prevent further introduction of this disease into New York, to contain the spread of this disease within New York, to prevent exportation of this disease outside of New York, and to protect the health of wild white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) and wild moose (Alces alces) in New York.
