Re: Game farm Damage
I called the Game Commission after a similar thing happened during the Jan. 1996 flood, and told them to move the pheasant farm to non-floodplain land, and pointed out that they own a lot of land, and could surely find some acreage on the land they already own that is not floodplain to raise the pheasants. But obviously they didn't take my advice.
Does anyone know if happened other times? Like in 1972 (Agnes)?
Why don't they just MOVE THE PHEASANTS?
If they don't, the same thing will happen again in the future. They must KNOW that, don't they?
It's just basic undergraduate hydrology and common sense. It's the floodplain. Floodplains flood. And if you have pheasants there in cages, the pheasants will die and your equipment will be damaged.
If anyone here knows people in the PGC, bend their ear on this. I tried last time.
They'll say it would cost money, but it only costs money once. And would avoid future flood damage costs.
