Deer Feeding Ban On In Minnesota

Starting Monday, Dodge, Goodhue, Olmsted and Wabasha counties in Minnesota will be under a deer feeding ban as part of an effort to fight chronic wasting disease in the state. A wild deer killed near Pine Island last November tested positive for the disease.

Minnesota DNR big-game coordinator Lou Cornicelli says CWD testing has gone on now for a while.

 

The feeding ban is meant to reduce deer-to-deer transmission of the disease by reducing the amount of locations where they would concentrate.

This is a good decision, it's meant to protect the deer from disease. I am all for it, hope Wisconsin follows soon.
