Homeless can't eat Deer Meat

The Homeless can't eat Deer Meat?
Well I guess they could if the Dept. of Health and Hospitals in Lousiana let them, but they won't.
What a waste! Typical of the government these days.

  1. It does sound like ridiculous waste of good meat. At no point did they explain just what this "health risk" was. I hear talk of chronic wasting disease in some of the deer up this way. Not a big risk from what I have read.
    "Although there have been reports in the popular press of humans being affected by CWD, a study by the CDC suggests that "[m]ore epidemiologic and laboratory studies are needed to monitor the possibility of such transmissions."[2] The epidemiological study further concludes that, "[a]s a precaution, hunters should avoid eating deer and elk tissues known to harbor the CWD agent (e.g., brain, spinal cord, eyes, spleen, tonsils, lymph nodes) from areas where CWD has been identified." (From wikipedia)

    1. I'm guessing that it's probably only because of the lack of FDA inspection during at least part (the field dressing) of the animal's butchering.
