    Default MNR 2018 CWD Tests

    Good to see !!


    The results are in! All samples tested in Ontario came back negative for chronic wasting disease! Thanks again to the hunters who participated in both of our surveillance zones: eastern Ontario, where 307 samples were tested, and southwestern Ontario, where 457 samples were tested.

    Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease affecting mostly white-tailed deer and elk. Since 2002, our science staff have tested over 12,400 samples, with no positive cases found in wild deer in Ontario. Our science staff use a risk-based model to decide where to survey each year, which increases the chances of detecting this disease as early as possible.

    Where did you see that?
    A "cure" seems unlikely for a condition that the "causative agent" is still not agreed upon by all the experts.

    Some of you may have heard about Dr. James Kroll who is a noted whitetail researcher. He discussed the claim of a cure here:
    http://www.northamericanwhitetail.co...wd-cure/357477

    He, and 3 others, wrote an article about all the hype and money thatís been wasted on controlling CDW.

    Testing to detect CWD is a waste of money.
    By the time they detect it-- too late--it's here.
    The MNR should eliminate all Cervid/Deer farms right now if they want to prevent CWD in Ontario.

    A recently retired district manager of the Ministry of Natural Resources manages an elk farm in Division 10 North West Ontario.

    What are the chances that the MNR will make a policy decision that would negatively impact one of their own colleagues?

    Zero!!!

    CWD will be here soon.

    MNR employees past and present, who could have prevented it, should be ashamed of themselves.

    You realize that deer walk right?

    Neighbouring districts have just as significant an impact on our wildlife as we do, a ban in Ontario 100 years ago would not stop the transmission from Quebec, Michigan, New York, Ohio, etc, you see where I am going here.
