CWD in Lancaster County

It keeps spreading.

First Lancaster County deer tests positive for chronic wasting disease | Local News | lancasteronline.com

"Asked for details about the farm where the deer tested positive for CWD, department spokeswoman Shannon Powers said in an email that it is in West Cocalico Township "in a pretty remote area” near Denver and that just the deer that tested positive was killed."

I've spent most of my money on Waterfowling, Women and Whiskey.
The rest of my money I just wasted.

Lancaster Co has more deer farming operations that any other of the 67 counties in PA. Most are on Amish farms. We are just beginning to see the repercussions of the authority for over seeing deer farms away from the PGC who was actually trying to control the movement of deer on deer farms to the department of agriculture who doesn't care what those people do and will hide any violations instead of filing charges. The was the beginning of the start of out of control. The depart. of Ag should be sued for dereliction of their duty when it comes to deer farms.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

It is interesting that they did not kill off the other deer. I hope it is because they are considering using it for genetic research. This would be a good chance to make the farm secure, genetically test all the deer and see which ones survive, if any. If a resistant genotype could be finally identified, a plan to use that to control CWD might be possible. All the deer farmers should support doing this and might even finance it if the government won't.

Ugh. Nearly in my backyard. With the risk these deer farms and CWD pose to the wild herd why do we allow deer farming to continue?

PGC and hunters need to demand a stop dead date for deer farms!

Where I goose hunt the farmer has a big deer farm operation in West Cocalico Township, Lancaster County. This might be the place talked about in the article. This farm borders Middle Creek where there are too many deer. CWD could easily spread into Middle Creek from this farm. I'm gonna talk to the Farmer and find out what's going on with his deer.
They got some Big Bucks.

How it got here is one thing. The spreading out from the DMA's is another. The PGC has it's own fence down by not removing antler restrictions.

Are there farms “preserves” that sell hunts or just farms that raise and sell deer?

Curly finally made a good point....antler restrictions in dma s are pointless...I just can’t get over that there is no accountability for the farmers that have infected deer...they should all be responsible for what comes in or goes out of their heard..,.
