We have been talking for over ten years about Chronic Wasting Disease and
the fact that slaughtering animals DOES NOT AND WILL NOT CONTAIN THE SPREAD
OF CWD (Mad Cow) in deer, elk and moose.
You would think that the DEC and other governmental agencies and scientists would realize that CWD is now endemic IN THE ENVIRONMENT.
Killing off the deer, elk and moose - animals that are susceptible to CWD -
does NOTHING to contain the spread of the disease.
Shooting the animals simply adds to the spread of the disease by putting
more blood and bodily fluids into the environment.
It is so sad that in this day and age of technology, all we can do is to
resort to primitive method of slaughtering animals, and for what? IT DOESN'T
Killing of these animals saddens me and it is all in vain.
