Adjacent States with a Confirmed CWD Positive

                         The MDWFP will coordinate with the state wildlife agency in the adjoining state
                          where CWD has been confirmed. MDWFP staff will gather the adjoining state’s data
                          concerning their past CWD surveillance program.
                         If the CWD positive location is within five miles of the Mississippi border, a CWD
                          Containment Zone will be established within that portion of a 5-mile radius circle that
                          falls within Mississippi. Sampling and surveillance procedures will be implemented
                          using protocol outlined under the management actions section of this plan that
                          addresses free-ranging cervids.
