Chronic Wasting Disease

(1/1)

Country Singer:
Chronic Wasting Disease is essentially "Mad Cow Disease" in deer.  While it has not (yet) appeared in Georgia, there is an outbreak in North Mississippi and West Tennessee.

Starlady:
Well, crap!   

There's also something new going on with ducks, geese & possible turkeys out west.  Not any avian flu known, not a flu at all.  The report I read yesterday tried to imply it was a similar prion-type disease, although extremely fast acting.  I think on that part they were just trying to stir up emotions, the docs quoted really didn't have a clue.

Country Singer:
Update: They've expanded the affected area.

Starlady:
Man, if bad things happen, that's gonna kill some folks who don't know about this and plan on living off their hunting.

BennyMG1:
Scary stuff. We do not do anything to concentrate deer on our place, but surrounding areas certainly do. There’s a hunting club out of Atlanta that has land close to us and i am certain they probably use any method out there, both legal and illegal, to concentrate deer.
