had to happen

I just read that the food banks in the Harrisburg area will no longer accept venison for the food-banks use due to concerns about the various diseases that some deer have. I have said before that this was due,also I am sure that some meat processors will stop cutting deer because of customers concerns about this issue even though butchers are supposed to keep their equipment separated. This won't affect those who cut their own deer,but has to cause some hunters to quit.  sam

    Not surprised but it is such a dumb move by the food banks. The chances of homeless or less fortunate folks getting sick from eating food outside of the banks is so much higher than any risk posed from disease in wild game.

    There was a city (State?) a few years back that pulled all of the donated venison out of food banks and poured bleach on it so it couldn’t be used because it wasn’t USDA inspected.

    Younz forget about "lead poisoning" from bullet fragmentation being used as a reason to stop donating venison? Is that still ongoing?

    And don’t think that it doesn’t go deeper than not wanting the possibility of bad meat being served. It is an anti hunting tactic that thinks if hunters who don’t eat the meat and donate it will stop hunting if the donation option isn’t available.

    Think that train of thought is way out there? It is, but don’t put that past the Cecil crowd to do.

    A few years ago there was a piece on 60 Minutes about ranches in Texas that raised Scimitar Ibex for hunting. Whether one agrees with high fences or not (keep in mind two things — 1) this is agriculture, not free range hunting and 2) these high fences are 10’s of thousands of acres), the species was on the verge of extinction and these ranches saved them. From there some were exported back to their native range in Africa, where they have been re-established.

    They had on an anti and pointed out the success of the program. The response was it would have been better had they gone extinct than to be saved and some of them be hunted.

    We were cutting up deer quarters for venison last weekend and found several bullet fragments pretty far from the impact site. Makes one wonder how much we do ingest without knowing it.

    In this era of litigation I am surprised that more places don't refuse this meat. I used to work at a large restaurant that used to give away the days leftovers until a guy tried to sue them claiming he got food poisoning from it.From then on they just threw every thing away. Can't say that I blame them.  sam

    Wonder what's worse a pound of bacon or lead shot deer meat ?
     
    I always loved when vegetarian's an vegans criticize meat eating ....ever wonder when they tested atomic and nuclear bombs out in the pacific ocean years ago and all the winds blew inward on all our US. farming soil and cities ? It did  !
    What's it take for nuclear particles to become no longer active ? ......thousands of years !   Yea ...organic eating my azz !

    Cap... just think, if it were not for the "lead paint" plus the (lead) contaminated wild game, handling lead fishing items etc, (fossil fuel) polluted air, smoking, snuff, re-loading shot shells...... I "probably/could/might live longer.

    But ya know, now that you mention "nuclear" maybe being contaminated with lead, ain't such a bad thing after all.

    Some other FFT, lead is said to affect the brain causing learning difficulties developmental delays, abdominal pain, neurologic changes, and irritability. At very high levels, it can be fatal.

    Yet Cannabis is now or will be legal and still alcohol, is sold by the millions of gallons?

    Dam that lead, I'm soooo toopid, not to believe the crap being fed to the public every day. Who am I to question why??
