If this happens its all right here in our house as hunters and landowners and supposedly conservation minded people. While Rome burns, we fiddle, fight each other, and fail to support the MDC when they need the support.
Well said! Every one is more concerned with what kind of decoys make you elite or should we hunt turkeys all day than fighting for what really matters.

So you think its wise to just wait and pray that the house doesnt get the votes to pass an ag bill with no back up plan??
We need a Rep in the majority to be willing to pick up the ball on this one. I will call Rep.Kevin Engler tomorrow and see how much he is willing to help. He told me today he would vote against the House version of the bill if it comes up. That was before I found out it has been attached as amendments to other bills.

It's not in "THE" ag bill . its in "AN" ag bill. It can be taken out as easy as it was added in if we raise enough cain.
Thats just the thing killmode, I dont think it will be regardless. An ag bill is perfect cover for them. It passed in a landslide in the senate. I would assume there was decent support in the house even before it was attached to a slam dunk. If its being used as a bargaining chip by the senate its probably going thru. This has been going on for a while and I have to think they already know what the vocal minority think. And yes, we are the vocal minority because lets face it, 95% of the deer hunters in MO wont be thinking about deer hunting for another 6 months...

Like I said, I sent the emails and if you guys have any other idea Ill participate but with the climate right now for jobs I cant see there being that much support for what will be seen as job killing over regulation.

perfect cover? ITS AN AG ISSUE, where else would they put it? No need to try to pick the fly crap out of the pepper, we just need to get VERY VOCAL A.S.A.P.

In a nutshell, a certain faction of Jeff City thinks the MDC is too big for their britches and they see this as an opportunity to take them down a notch. It isn't over till it's over. The clock is ticking. Hopefully if we can't get the amendment removed, we can run out the clock.

I agree. The perfect cover was in reference to it being an ag bill that apparently everyone wants passed so they will gain votes from people in that way. Id bet 60% of the House could care less either way on who regulates captive whitetails.

The wording to add ALL CAPTIVE CERVIDS to the definition of "livestock" in the state statutes is now in the following bills: SB 591, SB 506, SB 964, HB 2031, HB 1326

This simple change takes them out of the definition of "wildlife" which also takes the MDC out of the loop as far as regulation of the pens.

Please contact your legislators again and include all of the bills listed above. I won't drop names but some legislators who have said they are opposed to the change have already voted for it in one or more of the above bills. (possibly because they were not aware the wording was included in the bill)

Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) outbreaks and surveillance program in the Republic of Korea Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) outbreaks and surveillance program in the Republic of Korea

Hyun-Joo Sohn, Yoon-Hee Lee, Min-jeong Kim, Eun-Im Yun, Hyo-Jin Kim, Won-Yong Lee, Dong-Seob Tark, In- Soo Cho, Foreign Animal Disease Research Division, National Veterinary Research and Quarantine Service, Republic of Korea

Chronic wasting disease (CWD) has been recognized as an important prion disease in native North America deer and Rocky mountain elks. The disease is a unique member of the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs), which naturally affects only a few species. CWD had been limited to USA and Canada until 2000.

On 28 December 2000, information from the Canadian government showed that a total of 95 elk had been exported from farms with CWD to Korea.
These consisted of 23 elk in 1994 originating from the so-called 芒鈧搒ource farm芒鈧 in Canada, and 72 elk in 1997, which had been held in pre export quarantine at the 芒鈧搒ource farm芒鈧.

Based on export information of CWD suspected elk from Canada to Korea, CWD surveillance program was initiated by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) in 2001.

All elks imported in 1997 were traced back, however elks imported in 1994 were impossible to identify.

CWD control measures included stamping out of all animals in the affected farm, and thorough cleaning and disinfection of the premises.
In addition, nationwide clinical surveillance of Korean native cervids, and improved measures to ensure reporting of CWD suspect cases were implemented.

*Total of 9 elks were found to be affected.

CWD was designated as a notifiable disease under the Act for Prevention of Livestock Epidemics in 2002.

*Additional CWD cases - 12 elks and 2 elks - were diagnosed in 2004 and 2005.

*Since February of 2005, when slaughtered elks were found to be positive, all slaughtered cervid for human consumption at abattoirs were designated as target of the CWD surveillance program.

Currently, CWD laboratory testing is only conducted by National Reference Laboratory on CWD, which is the Foreign Animal Disease Division (FADD) of National Veterinary Research and Quarantine Service (NVRQS).

*In July 2010, one out of 3 elks from Farm 1 which were slaughtered for the human consumption was confirmed as positive.

*Consequently, all cervid 芒鈧" 54 elks, 41 Sika deer and 5 Albino deer 芒鈧" were culled and one elk was found to be positive.

Epidemiological investigations were conducted by Veterinary Epidemiology Division (VED) of NVRQS in collaboration with provincial veterinary services.

*Epidemiologically related farms were found as 3 farms and all cervid at these farms were culled and subjected to CWD diagnosis.

*Three elks and 5 crossbreeds (Red deer and Sika deer) were confirmed as positive at farm 2.

All cervids at Farm 3 and Farm 4 芒鈧" 15 elks and 47 elks 芒鈧" were culled and confirmed as negative.

Further epidemiological investigations showed that these CWD outbreaks were linked to the importation of elks from Canada in 1994 based on circumstantial evidences.

*In December 2010, one elk was confirmed as positive at Farm 5.
*Consequently, all cervid 芒鈧" 3 elks, 11 Manchurian Sika deer and 20 Sika deer 芒鈧" were culled and one Manchurian Sika deer and seven Sika deer were found to be positive.

This is the first report of CWD in these sub-species of deer.

*Epidemiological investigations found that the owner of the Farm 2 in CWD outbreaks in July 2010 had co-owned the Farm 5.

*In addition, it was newly revealed that one positive elk was introduced from Farm 6 of Jinju-si Gyeongsang Namdo.

All cervid 芒鈧" 19 elks, 15 crossbreed (species unknown) and 64 Sika deer 芒鈧" of Farm 6 were culled, but all confirmed as negative.

Volume 27 January 2012 Number 4

In addition, it was reported in May 2011 that natural cases of CWD were found in eight Sika deer (Cervus nippon) and five Sika/red deer crossbreeds during epidemiological investigations of CWD cases in captive elk in Korea.

cwd, spreading cwd around...tss

Between 1996 and 2002, chronic wasting disease was diagnosed in 39 herds of farmed elk in Saskatchewan in a single epidemic. All of these herds were depopulated as part of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency芒鈧劉s (CFIA) disease eradication program. Animals, primarily over 12 mo of age, were tested for the presence CWD prions following euthanasia. Twenty-one of the herds were linked through movements of live animals with latent CWD from a single infected source herd in Saskatchewan, 17 through movements of animals from 7 of the secondarily infected herds.

***The source herd is believed to have become infected via importation of animals from a game farm in South Dakota where CWD was subsequently diagnosed (7,4). A wide range in herd prevalence of CWD at the time of herd depopulation of these herds was observed. Within-herd transmission was observed on some farms, while the disease remained confined to the introduced animals on other farms.
