Re: Deer

Janet, they sell deer whistles. You mount two of them on the front of your car (in the right order), and you don't hear the whistle, but deer do and stay out of the way. That's the claim, and I haven't heard they don't work. "Wasting disease" sounds like anorexic deer or starving ones, but it's "Chronic Wasting Disease" or CWD, known to be in certain states, and it's a deer version of Mad Cow disease. Thus the meat MAY not transmit the disease to human diners, so long as they do NOT eat the brain, spinal cord, etc. That's the way the human version, Creutzfeld-Jakob disease (or vice versa) is transmitted.

It's a shame about the  population.  It's also scary driving at night where
deer are plentiful. I wonder what impact "wasting disease" is having on
those who hunt for food rather than only  sport.
