Iowa Brakkes, cwd infected game farm, et al, are wanting to go Cliven Bundy on game officials

 

SEEMS the Brakkes and their cwd infected game farm, and other shooting pens, are wanting to go Cliven Bundy on game officials, trying to rid the Brakkes farm of CWD, before it can do any more harm to the wild cervid herds.

 

Sad part is, it’s the likes of the Brakkes and other shooting pen owners, and that industry as a whole, that just don’t get it. they simply don’t care about the wild herds. it’s all about them and their money $$$. that’s my opinion, but see for yourself;

I would also try to get Keith Warren there and put this on the outdoor channels!! If Ryan Sabolow can get is no sense article nation wide and in the USA today. This needs to be on the cover!!! There should not be a deer or elk farmer in Iowa that should not be there that day. These people need the pressure put on them big time.

 

This is What CWD Looks Like on Our Farm

May God have mercy. I don't think I could resist from cutting the wire so they at least had a chance, even knowing the outcome would be costly to the whole deer farm community. What a complete waste of life, to kill and find zero to one of those deer have the disease, but I am banking on zero.

I think we should do what they did at Wind Cave. Let's just take the fence down and let them loose.

Gary That would bring the news. If 100 deer farmers showed up and started taking the fence down. I think another great idea would be to take all the staples out but one then as soon as they fired the first killing shot with all the media present let it go. They will knock that last staple out.

Rhonda,

 

Like I have told you before they would have to kill me first before I let them needlessly slaughter my animals. When the day comes we should ALL be standing at the gates and say enough is enough. A protest would make the news for sure.

 


 


 

>>> Let's just take the fence down and let them loose.

 

I THOUGHT that had already been done on the Brakkes farm ??

 

16. On June 3, 2013, DNR became aware that sections of the exterior fence surrounding the Quarantined Premises had been removed and that some, if not all, of the exterior gates to and from the Quarantined Premises were open.

 

17. On June 4, 2013, DNR received reports from the public in the area that four wild deer were observed inside the Quarantined Premises.

 

18. On June 5, 2013, DNR conducted a fence inspection, after gaining approval from surrounding landowners, and confirmed that the fenced had been cut or removed in at least four separate locations; that the fence had degraded and was failing to maintain the enclosure around the Quarantined Premises in at least one area; that at least three gates had been opened; and that deer tracks were visible in and around one of the open areas in the sand on both sides of the fence, evidencing movement of deer into the Quarantined Premises. see more here on this ;

IOWA DNR EMERGENCY CONSENT ORDER IN THE MATTER OF TOM & LINDA BRAKKE D/B/A PINE RIDGE HUNTING LODGE UPDATE AUGUST 21, 2013

 

snip...

 

5. On July 16, 2012, DNR received a notice from the Texas Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Lab ("Texas Vet Lab”) that a sample from an adult male deer killed at Pine Ridge tested presumptively positive for CWD. (DNR has an agreement with the Texas Vet Lab to run these preliminary tests.) Because the Texas Vet Lab found this presumptive positive result, protocols required the sample to be sent to the National Veterinary Services Laboratory ("National Lab”) in Ames, Iowa for final confirmation. On July 18, 2012, the National Lab confirmed the positive CWD result in the deer.

 

6. On July 19, 2012, DNR notified the Brakkes of the positive test by phone. Mr. Brakke was out of state.

 

snip...

 

12. The Brakkes depopulated the Hunting Preserve, as specified in the Agreement, from September 10, 2012 to January 31, 2013. As part of this effort, the Brakkes, the staff and their customers killed 199 captive deer and nine captive elk. The DNR obtained 170 CWD samples. (Samples were not taken from fawns and one adult female who was killed in a manner that made sampling impossible.) Of these 199 deer, two additional adult male deer tested positive for CWD. Information provided by the Brakkes confirmed that these two additional deer originated from the Brakke Breeding Facility.

 

13. DNR installed, with the Brakke's permission, an interior electric fence on October 1 and 2, 2012.

 

14. The Brakkes cleaned and disinfected, under DNR supervision, the feeders and ground surrounding the feeders on April 5, 2013.

 

15. On April 26, 2013, the Brakkes hand-delivered a notice to the DNR’s Chief of Law Enforcement Bureau, notifying the DNR that they would no longer operate a hunting preserve on the Quarantined Premises. The Brakkes did not reveal any plans to remove the fence around the Quarantined Premises or to remove the gates to and from the Quarantined Premises in this April 26, 2013 letter.

 

16. On June 3, 2013, DNR became aware that sections of the exterior fence surrounding the Quarantined Premises had been removed and that some, if not all, of the exterior gates to and from the Quarantined Premises were open.

 

17. On June 4, 2013, DNR received reports from the public in the area that four wild deer were observed inside the Quarantined Premises.

 

18. On June 5, 2013, DNR conducted a fence inspection, after gaining approval from surrounding landowners, and confirmed that the fenced had been cut or removed in at least four separate locations;

 

that the fence had degraded and was failing to maintain the enclosure around the Quarantined Premises in at least one area;

 

that at least three gates had been opened;

 

and that deer tracks were visible in and around one of the open areas in the sand on both sides of the fence, evidencing movement of deer into the Quarantined Premises.

Stakeholder Announcement: APHIS to Offer Indemnity for CWD Positive Herds as Part of Its Cervid Health Activities

 

USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service sent this bulletin at 03/03/2014 12:10 PM EST

 

APHIS to Offer Indemnity for CWD Positive Herds as Part of Its Cervid Health Activities

 

WASHINGTON, March 03, 2014— APHIS received a total of $3 million in appropriated funding to support cervid health activities in fiscal year 2014, and it will make $1.0 million available for indemnity of chronic wasting disease (CWD) positive, suspect, and exposed farmed cervids.

 

APHIS is committed to partnering with states and industry to reduce the incidence of CWD in farmed cervid populations. The availability of indemnity funds provides support to affected producers to protect the health of farm cervids and to minimize the spread of CWD to other cervid populations.

 

Several CWD positive and exposed herds are currently under state quarantine in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. APHIS has engaged all three states to see if they plan to request indemnity on behalf of the herds’ producers.

 

Indemnity will be based on the APHIS-approved appraised value of the animals as well as depopulation and disposal costs. In order to be eligible for indemnity, states need to provide herd plans in accordance with APHIS’ established CWD regulatory requirements (9 CFR 55).

 

APHIS is also providing $200,000 in support of CWD research efforts at the Agency’s National Wildlife Research Center to develop live animal diagnostic tests. The remaining funding for APHIS’ cervid health programs will support the Cervid Tuberculosis Accreditation Program, the CWD voluntary Herd Certification Program, and general program activities.

*** APHIS to Offer Indemnity for CWD Positive Herds as Part of Its Cervid Health Activities ??

 


 

*** Infectious agent of sheep scrapie may persist in the environment for at least 16 years***

 

Gudmundur Georgsson1, Sigurdur Sigurdarson2 and Paul Brown3

 


 

*** We conclude that TSE infectivity is likely to survive burial for long time periods with minimal loss of infectivity and limited movement from the original burial site. However PMCA results have shown that there is the potential for rainwater to elute TSE related material from soil which could lead to the contamination of a wider area. These experiments reinforce the importance of risk assessment when disposing of TSE risk materials.

 

*** The results show that even highly diluted PrPSc can bind efficiently to polypropylene, stainless steel, glass, wood and stone and propagate the conversion of normal prion protein. For in vivo experiments, hamsters were ic injected with implants incubated in 1% 263K-infected brain homogenate. Hamsters, inoculated with 263K-contaminated implants of all groups, developed typical signs of prion disease, whereas control animals inoculated with non-contaminated materials did not.

*** How Chronic Wasting Disease is affecting deer population and what’s the risk to humans and pets? ***

 


 

*** The potential impact of prion diseases on human health was greatly magnified by the recognition that interspecies transfer of BSE to humans by beef ingestion resulted in vCJD. While changes in animal feed constituents and slaughter practices appear to have curtailed vCJD, there is concern that CWD of free-ranging deer and elk in the U.S. might also cross the species barrier. Thus, consuming venison could be a source of human prion disease. Whether BSE and CWD represent interspecies scrapie transfer or are newly arisen prion diseases is unknown. Therefore, the possibility of transmission of prion disease through other food animals cannot be ruled out. There is evidence that vCJD can be transmitted through blood transfusion. There is likely a pool of unknown size of asymptomatic individuals infected with vCJD, and there may be asymptomatic individuals infected with the CWD equivalent. These circumstances represent a potential threat to blood, blood products, and plasma supplies.
