Mr. Singeltary,

I was asked to provide you with the following information. If you have any other questions regarding CWD sampling in Texas, please do not hesitate to give me a call. My office number is below.

Below I have included a chart showing CWD samples that have been tested since the fall of 2002 through the present at the eco-region level. The second chart shows the totals on a given year. The unknown location samples come from private individuals sending in samples directly to the Texas Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Lab (TVMDL). Due to the confidentiality laws that the TVMDL operates under, they are unable to provide TPWD with the location of those samples.

===============================

I would like to thank Kevin and TPWD for there prompt reply
with updated data.

I am still concerned about the Texas, New Mexico border and
New Mexico's apparent lack of CWD testing updates. Makes one
wonder about there CWD testing program. NO report/reply back
from New Mexico about there CWD testing update yet. ...
