    Warning!!!!!

    Health officials are issuing a warning about eating wild game meat. In 10 states deer and elk have been tested positive for an illness. It is called (CWD) or Chronic Wasting Disease. The animals develop spongelike brains, I take it that this is some sort of illness realted to the Mad Cow Disease? The states in which the affect meat has been found is in:

    Kansas
    Colorado
    Minnesota
    Montana
    South Dakota
    Nebraska
    New Mexico
    Oklahoma
    Wisconsin
    Wyoming

    Just thought I woudl throw out a WARNING...

    Isn't Wisconsin kicking around the idea of doing a large kill of deer in an area of the state to try and curb it there?

    Wisconsin is planning to, or already has had a large hunt to get rid of the deer with CWD. A lot of the universities and medical clinics there and in Minnesota have offered to test the deer meat for hunters. I think I recall that it's not supposed to harm you if you eat the meat, but they don't advise it just for safety's sake. I think they're more afraid it will spread to livestock.

    No - I wouldn't eat it. I'm not the biggest meat eater in the world, and I don't like venison much.

    This testing for CWD normally involves an evaluation of brain tissue so hunters in Wisconsin are decapitating they kills and taking them to designated state testing agencies for evaluation.
