And what do you think they should do?As I have been saying for awhile now, CWD has long been established throughout Pennsylvania. No surprise that a new case has turned up in free range.
There will be no containment plan that works. All of the current "solutions" have proven to not do much, yet the PGC continues to forge ahead with failing plans.
Once again you can thank your legislators for taking control of deer farms from the PGC and giving it to the Agriculture Dept.I will tell you bluntly that the pgc and other agencies are not doing there job with cwd. The only reason it is in this state and spreading is from deer farms and transporting those deer. Every captive deer should have been killed years ago and anyone moving one over the border should be locked up and fined to the max. Every day they wait is to long.
I have stated many times what should be done. And I stated them directly to you.And what do you think they should do?
Actually, I am correct. If you would go back and read my first posts on this subject many years ago when this discussion began, I predicted exactly what has happened.You are also very much wrong about it being established throughout the state.
That is an assumption. No one knows if the current plans have "slowed" the spread. What we do know is that CWD continues to spread despite all of these plans that have been tried over and over in the past.There is little doubt it is going to eventually spread across most and perhaps even eventually all of the state but the people who have studied the subject know it can be slowed greatly by following the action plan in place by the Game Commission.
Yep. Doesn't work or prevent the spread of the disease. It is here, and will be here for a long time. Precautions, education, and strong regulation of game farms are the ways forward.ALSO: take a look at how Wisconsin tried to manage the spread of CWD years ago. almost eradicated their entire deer herd....didnt work.
The reasons they couldn’t contain it or perhaps even slow CWD from spreading in Wisconsin was due to several factors.Yep. Doesn't work or prevent the spread of the disease.

No cure, no way to stop it, and since it was first found, all it has done is spread. And yes the prions are in the meat also, not just the parts that are restricted. Trim fat, debone, don't eat brain, but it is also in the musle tissue. Any thought of useful prevention was not used in the past. And for the deer I Wisconsin, the wolves in the northern part of the state have really reduced deer numbers.
