Another game farm introduced CWD outbreak
« on: February 15, 2019, 03:08:30 PM »
This is next to the game farm by Merrifield that has confirmed CWD animals and has had many breaches in the fencing.

The Department of Natural Resources has confirmed chronic wasting disease (CWD) in a wild deer in Crow Wing County. This test result marks the first time in Minnesota the fatal neurological disease has been found in a wild deer outside of the southeastern part of the state.


Strommen emphasized that “I will take all steps within my authority to ensure the facility with CWD-positive deer has adequate safeguards in place to protect Minnesota’s wild deer.”


Only one problem with this statement.  The DNR CANNOT do anything to ensure the facility has safeguards because it is under the board of animal control and they obviously don't give a rats butt about it.
