More on diseased pheasants

The Loyalsock outbreak this year was the first occurrence at a commission game farm in nearly a decade.
So now we know this isnt the first dance with this disease, yet I dont remember it ever being reported. And remember, the only way to keep it from spreading is by destroying the flock, or by injection. Since the birds were neither destroyed, or PGC gave 100K pheasants injections diseased birds were stocked into the wild 10 years ago. It sure seems like QC is lacking within the commission but cover-up is running rampant.

Linky to the article

Plenty of scouting and good habitat makes for a great hunt.

Re: More on diseased pheasants

This email has information offered as fact that is not in evidence. You do not know anything of the outbreak 10 years ago. How it was handled, how many birds were involved or the strain of avian cholera. Putting the fact in the news release is not a really good way to hide it if that was their intent. My request for info from the PGC on this last issue was for more information on the science that was used to make the decision to release the birds and not for their destruction. If the veterinary department at Penn State said it was safe, that's good enough for me. I prefer to make decisions based on facts and not my imagination.
