http://www.thetimesherald.com/story/news/local/2018/01/31/cwd-study-track-deer-movement/1082227001/ "Michigan State University and the state Department of Natural Resources are partnering in a deer tracking study, according to a news release, in an effort to assess deer movement and distribution patterns and how they affect the spread of the disease in and around Clinton and Ingham counties." Why would they do this? Havent they heard from the internet biologists that any effort to understand/contain CWD movement is futile and should not be undertaken? .“We know that that CWD may be spread through direct deer-to-deer contact and by the shedding of CWD proteins, or prions, into the environment," said Dr. Sonja Christensen, postdoctoral research fellow in the Boone and Crockett Quantitative Wildlife Center at MSU, in the news release. "By understanding where and why deer are moving across the region, we can better understand the role deer play in moving the disease,” Why in the world would we need to understand where and why deer are moving the disease around? This gal doing her post doc sounds like a kook and has not taken the advice of internet biologists that know more about the disease than she does. We all know that doing nothing about it is the answer, get a grip. “Understanding how local deer populations change with the presence of CWD and associated management actions will help us measure the effectiveness of disease control actions and anticipate future disease management needs,” said Dr. Dwayne Etter, DNR research specialist. Sounds like useless information to collect and a huge waste of time and resources, listen to the experts and do nothing at all for cripes sakes.
