MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WAFF) - Alabama is increasing checks for chronic wasting disease.

If you shoot a deer in Alabama, you’re asked to submit it for testing.

Employees with the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources say it’s important since the deadly disease has been reported in both Tennessee and Mississippi.

The department has testing instructions and a map of drop-off locations on its Outdoor Alabama website.
