Such notice shall identify the boundaries of the containment area(s). Upon publication of notice of a CWD containment area, the provisions of this section shall apply to the identified area. The department shall also publicize the establishment of a CWD containment area through press release and by posting notice on the department's website.
(b) Exportation of certain animal parts from a CWD containment area.
No person shall remove from the CWD containment area the brain, eyes, spinal cord, tonsils, intestinal tract, spleen, or retropharyngeal lymph nodes, or any portion of such parts, of wild, captive, or captive-bred animals of the Genus Cervus or the Genus Odocoileus or the Genus Alces obtained from or taken within the CWD containment area, or any carcass containing such parts, except under permit issued by the department or as authorized by subdivision (g) of this section.
