Putnam man charged for illegal possession of whitetail deer from CWD positive states
James Carter Jr. of Putnam County plead guilty to five counts of importation of animal parts from a Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) positive state. Putnam County Wildlife officers Jamie Greenwood and Mike Beaty discovered illegal deer parts during a routine survey of taxidermist on January 4. Out of state importation of any cervid (member of the deer family) is allowed if animals are processed and cleaned correctly.
