Game Commission Monday March 4th CWD press conference Live Stream Video:
Why? I learned a few things I didn't know, and understand they are trying to proceed with caution. Did you even bother to watch the video?Forestman3 said:What a joke.
The farming of wildlife is widespread and is a much needed resource for today's growing population and dwindling natural resources. Everything from oysters, to salmon to bison, deer, pheasants, talapia etc..... The key here is enough oversight amd regulation to ensure that disease is not spread to wild populations or the public.Forestman3 said:Yea I watched it.I say what a joke because first of all the game commission should of never started letting people put deer in a fence.Deer are a wild animal and not meant to be in a fence.Second of all they knew this was going to happen sooner or later and they still don`t have a plan in order.This whole thing of another agency is just politics.
Heres a few things that should be done imo.All the deer in these fences in the whole state should be killed and buried 6 feet under in the middle of the fence area and the fence should have to stay up for two years.All feeding deer in the wild should be stoped and that includes saltlicks and all.All deer that are killed out of state should be butchered and only the meat and horns with enough skull to hold them together brought across state lines.
Will any of this happen?No.Will we wish they would of taken drastic measures like this in the future?
True. Point is the farming of wildlife is widespread with those products being used and/or consumed by our earth's population. Farm raised venison is a viable commodity as are leather goods from farm raised deer.dce said:Deer are not a dwindling natural resource.
You are correct that CWD is now here in our wild herd but that still doesn’t negate the fact that the FIRST step still needs to be to make Department of Ag. accountable and to start taking responsibility for getting their cervid farmers under control and into reasonable compliance with the law or at least some level of common sense.Forestman3 said:Your looking for someone to blame.It doesn`t matter anymore where past that.We have CWD in the wild herd.What is monitering going to do but tell you what we allready know?I`m asking what you would do to stop it as much as possible.
