Isn’t it true that you won’t eat something that’s probably going to kill you slowly? Some don’t mind that.
Why is venison so expensive?
The red meat originates, quite often, from the savage amusement of hunters from Colorado.
It’s been said that the meat from deers originated from outside Craig’s town. The region has a low-predominance of Chronic Wasting Disease, which is a destructive neurological issue, something like the Mad Cow disease that is found in deer, elk and moose. This disease has already infected wild herds among the states of US and in Canada. Also, South Korea and Norway. However, there were no reports of humans being ill. Hunters are asked to test the meat before preparing it.
Can we know for sure if the animal is sick?
People have to be more careful. It’s not easy to find a sick animal due to its great body fat and their normal behaviour. And these happen because the animals can live up to 2 years without showing any symptoms. However, there are no signs yet that the infected meat hurt people so far.
CWD goes from creature to creature through prions, misfolded proteins that reason different proteins to misfold around them. Diverse prion maladies keep an eye on just damaging certain species, yet can develop to defeat those constraints.
How to find if the animal is sick
Colorado Parks and Wildlife demanded tests in different areas of the state to get a better idea of where the disease is spread. For this, the heads of the animals are required. They need two grey lymph nodes, which can be found in the crevice between the neck and the chin.
Specialists and public health authorities are keeping an eye on the population to see if someone registers with illnesses related to CWD.
