A spokesperson for the Missouri Conservation says they are looking it possibly changing state regulations that would prohibit importing deer carcasses from other states.

And they are also looking at restricting movement of carcasses within Missouri to minimize contact between infected deer and healthy deer.

Public hearings across the state are planned by the department this month to spread information and to get public input.
