Apparently some folks from University of Minnesota have stated it is very likely CWD will be transmitted to people, many, by eating contaminated meat.

"If Stephen King could write an infectious disease novel, it would be about prions like this"


Seriously, can we get more alarmist?

There has not been one case of CWD that presented in a human and not one case of mad cow that transmitted to a human. Silly UoM folks want their 5 minutes of news

I’m not going to get all off into the fray, as I’m not a prion disease scientist, and most would not change their opinions re:the risk of CWD if the Good Lord Himself came down and spoke about it.

It’s become the “Climate Change” debate among deer hunters.

IDK the answers, or the true risks. But neither do all the CWD deniers. “Outdoor Life” just ran an article on the subject in this month’s issue.

They are trolling for funding.......they understand that we have a large swath of our population now that is easy to manipulate by pushing their emotional buttons........people that never logically think about facts like they have a much greater chance of dying each time they start their vehicle and put in it drive...............I'm sure flounder will be along soon to cut and paste the end of days....

This sadly seems to be the trend in media now.......let's scare our customers into subscribing or tuning in. I think your description of "climate change" debate among deer hunters is pretty accurate.

Agree. Saw a sidebar on CNN today. Something to the effect of "Zombie Deer Could Infect Humans". There's an obvious underground pushing misinformation. Why or who? PETA would be my best guess. Coming at it from another angle. How anyone could be so misguided is beyond me.

CWD exists no denying it, but there is no proof(facts)in 50 plus years of any population extinction or consumption based transfered to humans. In the end there are multiple different prions that effect every species of animal in the world, including fish....therefore if you are worried about CWD then it’s best to become vegan. With one exception to veganism, it’s been said that prions Can be excreted and its been hypothesized that if my food poops on vegan food, vegans are screwed also.





Donate to TX Youth hunting program.... better to donate then to waste it in taxes

The exact headline I clicked on from Foxnews.

There are some funny videos out there that imply the news is fed to the major agencies via one source, as all the headlines and specifically what the news anchors say is all the same...this is an example of such an incident. Zombie deer could infect humans...let me see if I can find those videos

98% of “news” is sensationalized to get clicks and eyeballs these days that's for sure.

I haven't read the latest article but an earlier article quoted Dr. Michael Osterholm. Dr. Osterholm's position is that because it happened once it can happen again. The problem with that position it that it ignores the unique set of circumstances that caused scrapie to jump the interspecies barrier from sheep to cattle becoming bovine spongiform encephalopathy which jumped the interspecies barrier to people. The rendering of scrapie diseased sheep into protein supplements fed to cattle resulted in repeated exposure that eventually allowed a mutated form to jump the barrier. The chances of something similar happening with CWD are tiny. The existence of that chance is why it's not a good idea to consume CWD infected deer but if you happen to have done it there's no big danger.


for every stereotype there's a prototype

My advice is to avoid eating raw deer brains.

Got to love “scientist” that use the terms “could possibly”. Shame all the hundreds of millions of dollars spent on this disease only got them, maybe, one day, could possibly, if we hold our mouths just right we might have this spread to humans.

Here’s a head line one day the sun could possibly explode!!!! Spread the word!

Yep, just like the media in all other areas it's not about facts or what's right or wrong anymore with the media.
I'm willing to acknowledge that I don't have all of the answers. Even though I don't believe there are any documented cases of a human contracting CWD, there is one thing that makes me entertain the possibility. How many people contracted and died of things like AIDS for years before scientists figured out what it was and how they got it? I'm definitely not in the flounder/chicken little camp and I'm going to continue to eat the deer I kill, but I'm open to any new legitimate evidence that may come up.

It is amazing the things that can be affected because of speculation by those with no facts.

Millions of deer are killed and eaten every year across the US... Romaine lettuce kills more people than folks eating deer.

It has become a very big money grab for researchers, they must find something to continue their funding grants. I have a family member that retired over this. The gov't wanted him to basically falsify documents showing cwd as dangerous to which he was unwilling. Says it has been around since the beginning and they just happen to have the technology to find things that weren't available in the past. Wildlife management across the west freaked out that they would lose their hunters $ if this leaked out so they attempted to fix what wasn't broken to avoid the appending doom that wasn't coming.

Well the Yellowstone super volcano may kill us all when it wipes out Wyoming with an eruption, I worry about that more than getting CWD, lol.
