    My guess is that the penalties for violations do not dyer the bad behavior, which in turn may threaten our wild herd???

    The list of large operaters who have been caught illegally shipping deer has grown. That makes the industry need to be tested. They are resisting mandatory testing. Any guesses as to why. :D

    You have to kill the asset to test it?

    MO HIGH FENCE OPERATIONS ALREADY HAVE TO TEST ALL MORTALITY. THIS IS NOT NEW AND IS MANDATORY.

    this would be great if the pen operations were ethical...just spit balling here but I would guess the MDC enforcement in year past was horrible at best and there are many ways the pen operations can avoid testing their knowingly sick and then dead animals......

    do they test all deer that are "hunter" killed in high fence game operations, or only what appears to be unexpected natural death?

    That's not true. Testing is not required in all operations because the regs are tied up in court.

    No, they test all mortality over 1 year old.

    It was argued and testified to, under oath, to the MO supreme court that all mortlaity over 1 year must be tested CURRENTLY.

    How much dear to your heart would you wager that not one dead captive deer went untested. What should be, and what is, are not always equal.

    Now, I am not in any way saying this is a widespread issue, but do not tell me there are no unscrupulous people wanting to protect what they have.

    Thats not really the point. If theres rules in place now and they arent followed (like ALL RULES in place regardless of subject) why would another rule saying the same thing fix that? It wont.

    I am not saying anything about rules, new or old, I am concerned with reality, actual existence of a disease. I am getting the impression that you are saying it does not exist in captive deer because of a rule.

    I didnt say that, I said that there is already a rule, and a new rule wont change that.

    wonder if any ever "escaped" rather than have them die and need to be tested?

    Only to be certified . Non certified deer breeders don't have to test.
