In this week's Nevada Wild, Ashley Sanchez and Aaron Keller introduce Nevada Department of Wildlife Veterinarian Nate LaHue. LaHue explains his role at NDOW, and the various projects he works on to monitor the health of Nevada's wildlife. Currently, LaHue and NDOW biologists are busy working to prevent Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD), a fatal disease to animals in the deer family, from entering the state. While it hasn't been found in Nevada, CWD has been detected in our neighboring state, Utah. LaHue explains what hunters need to know before heading into the field to help NDOW stop CWD from entering Nevada. For more information on CWD and NDOW's prevention efforts click here.

Nevada Wild runs on 99.1 FM Talk in northern Nevada at 10 a.m. every Sunday morning. 99.1 FM Talk also streams Nevada Wild live online.
