I cut off all wild & store processed meat last year when a TB deer was found in MI. We raise all our meat except the beef we buy from the farmer next door. Even at that, it is frozen & I will not eat it until they eat the same beef. I wait 8 weeks.

Who would want to eat a dieased animal? Not me!

Only if you are on the wrong side of the fence or the fence is not built right. Mark H.

Well Toolman, maybe they will have a Christmas south of the border after all. Now USDA can let Santa drive his Reindeers and sleigh into their air space with out fear. Sure hope that Young Hampshire Redneck reads this afore he Blasts ol Red Britches outa the sky with a load of SSG's tomorrow night.
Later Bob

Just starting reading the article. No cure. No definitive test for it. You know you got it when they try to figure out why you died.

You can not disinfect easily: 1 hour full strength bleach (usual disinfect procedures call for 10% bleach but this one is full strength for hours in contact with the surface),. Autoclave under pressure for hours or formic acid over time.

Nasty things: prions.

people eat wild meat all the time and they have found it in some deer and elk , figured it may have come from farmed elk or deer ranches,just a different name for it , and some kind of a worm too they were saying something about in the wild meat has a bad effect on humans, way i look at it you take your chances everyday no matter what you do , i never quit eating beef when they had that one case here i probably ate more, can, t worry about everything or you,ll drive yourself crazy, i belive north american food is probably as safe or safer than anything anywhere else in the world.its tghe ranchers and farmers who will pay a heavy price for this, if it plays out like it did up here some will be out of bussiness lifes work down the drain.

Since we deal in making Dog Cookies my wife has for the past 16+ years investigated and researched the meat, food products and by products a lot. She has had lots of things including others dog treats tested by people not affliated with them and found out stuff I will not repeat on line. This is why we never use anything not allowed for people and quite a few things that are in our Dog Cookies we bake. You should see some of the offers we get from companys to put in our product. Some of the things are spoiled fish loads they are tring to get rid of and that is just a tip of the barrle. They think just because we make things for dog's you can put anything into it. Some company do but we don't and won't. Mark H.

Haven't heard that yet? Are you sure it is not the one in Western Washington in Mabton?? Mark H.

Mabton, WA is a remote area of the Yakama Indian Reservation and on the Eastern side of Washington State. A ways from me but, the Fox News got it wrong by saying Western Washington. Guess we will be in the news for a while! Mark H.
