Since so many on here also hunt I thought I would pass this on.

Over the last two NC legislative sessions some of the same folks that have given our marine resources to industry have also been busy paving the way for deer farms and commercial deer operations in NC. So why were some folks who knew something about those operations so concerned?

Maybe this will help, and lets hope there will never be a summer with nothing of consequence left to fish for in NC waters, and a winter where only a memory of wild deer remains thanks to our legislature.

Deer Succumbing to Disease

Some trawl operator will be forced to change in order to reduce bycatch. If you worry about that more than stopping the bycatch then the resource is secondary to you. Recovery has one less advocate.

For more info:  https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/ourfocus/animalhealth/nvap/NVAP-Reference-Guide/Control-and-Eradication/Transmissible-Spongiform-Encephalopathies

perhaps more importantly:

https://www.cdc.gov/prions/cwd/index.html

These diseases are very, very hard to transmit and require specific conditions for transmission.  Examples of human disease are found in butchers where they are exposed to thousands of animals (cows).  Other instances are from Africa where eating monkey meat, or brain is a risk factor.  We have all heard of "Mad Cow" disease.  In deer, the crowding makes prion transmission more likely.  

Note:  Prion disease remains an enigma to traditional microbiologists.  There is no treatment.

Okay, enough of the science.  Who the heck thought this was a good idea anyway?  At some point common sense has to trump greed.  Ray, who pushed this?

Senator Brent Jackson is the one who pushed for it so hard in the legislature. Any deer hunter that sees wild herds die off from a disease that begins at a deer farm or a disease is imported into NC because a deer farm wants a new "buck" to improve the gene pool and brings disease with him should remember Jackson's name.

As far as I know nothing was ever done about Jackson approving grants for his son and himself. 100's of thousands of dollars......

You know it is bad when these pro Republican folks start turning on their own.



Yes, You Senator Jackson!
