Cars lined Main Street and the side streets surrounding the Chatfield Center for the Arts (CCA) last Wednesday evening as hunters, deer farmers and landowners from Chatfield, the surrounding area, and as far away as Hayfield, Byron and upper Iowa towns gathered at Potter Auditorium for a presentation on chronic wasting disease (CWD). CWD now affects wild deer populations in southeastern Minnesota, parts of Iowa and Wisconsin.
