Part 2

‚Äč They headed for the bigger game animals and noticed a moose that was in bad shape. the doctor asked Abby if she knew what was wrong with him. She told him if it was an Elk she would think it was hoof disease. He told her that was exactly what was wrong and they might as well put it out of his missery so they shot and killed it then they sawed off his affected hooves and placed them into a plastic bag and placed them in a cooler with dry ice and shipped them to the the USDA National Animal Disease Center to be tested and either confirmed or not.

If that was hoof disease they had work to do to keep the other moose population from getting it also Abby called Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) and notified them what the vet thought it was and where she had shipped the hooves to. They thanked her and would be waiting to hear from her on the results and even gave her the direct line to the person who needed to know The test came back positive for hoof's disease. She notified MDC and was put on their list not to transport any more animals there untill further noticed and since the park wasn't open to hunters they didn't have to worry that it might be spread that way but campers was about it and infomed they were closing the cmp grounds down a little earlier than usual.
