News Channel 9/Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday February 7, 2018

A Putnam County taxidermist has pleaded guilty to five counts of importing animal parts from a state that is positive for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD). According to News Channel 9, James Carter Jr. has been fined approximately $900. CWD is a fatal neurological disease spread through direct contact of cervids, like deer and elk. It is against the law in Tennessee to import, transport or possess the carcass of any member of the deer family from a state that is known to have CWD. The illegal deer parts were reportedly discovered at Carter's taxidermy studio during a routine visit by Putnam County Wildlife officers on January 4. Charges will not be pursued against the hunters who left the deer at Carter's studio.
