ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland’s Department of Natural Resources has implemented new regulations to help stop the spread of chronic wasting disease in deer.

The regulations band the use of bait and limit the movement of deer carcasses. They apply to only a small part of Allegany County.

The section includes part of Green Ridge State Forest east of Flintstone and Oldtown. Feeding forest game birds and mammals is prohibited on public and private land.

The transportation of certain parts of deer carcasses out the area is restricted unless the carcass is being taken directly to an approved deer processor in Allegany County.

DNR is placing dumpsters at several locations within the area for use by hunters who butcher their own deer.
