Daily discussion: Did the state go overboard in response to chronic wasting disease?


So, the question remains … are strict quarantines a smart move by state officials that are racing the clock in attempting to contain CWD?

Is it OK that small-scale deer farmers could be faced with major financial difficulties as they care for deer that they can’t gain any income from for the foreseeable future?

Does this mean moving forward as more cases are confirmed that even more of the state’s deer farmers will be locked down? How deep will it go? Is it a case of the needs of the many outweighing the needs of the few?

We’d love to hear your opinion on this topic.
