Pennsylvania’s wildlife resources face a variety of threats. These threats are often related to both natural and human-caused factors. As the state agency responsible for managing Pennsylvania’s wildlife, the Game Commission must mitigate these threats whenever possible.

Diseases like Chronic Wasting Disease, mange, and tuberculous have the potential to significantly affect wildlife populations. Though these diseases do spread naturally, their spread is significantly increased when wildlife is unnaturally concentrated. When people feed wildlife, they escalate this concentration. The Game Commission takes the threat of wildlife diseases very seriously and is prepared to take appropriate steps to mitigate wildlife diseases and their spread.

We encourage you to stop by and learn about this issue and offer comments at an upcoming open house.
