(b) A herd plan shall be developed by a representative of the commissioner and the owner within 21 days of the date the herd quarantine is issued. This herd plan shall be approved by the owner, the state APHIS representative, and the commissioner and shall detail how animal movement into and from the CWD-infected herd may occur.
(c) Each domesticated cervid permittee shall notify the commissioner of the death of any animal in a CWD-in-fected herd. The notice shall be given to the commissioner within 24 hours of the discovery of the animal's death. An approved test shall be administered by a designee of the commissioner to the carcass of each animal in the CWD-infected herd that dies.
(d) If an animal in a CWD-infected herd shows symptomatic or clinical signs of CWD, the domesticated cervid permittee shall notify the commissioner. The animal shall be euthanized and administered an approved test by a designee of the commissioner.
(e) The carcass of each CWD-positive animal shall be disposed of only by a method and at a site approved by the commissioner and the secretary of the Kansas department of health and environment or the secretary's designee.
(f) The quarantine on the CWD-infected herd shall be removed after five consecutive years in which there are no animals in the CWD-infected herd with any clinical signs of CWD and no positive results on an approved test. The owner of a CWD-infected herd may apply to reenroll the herd in the program with a year-five herd status.
