Patriot, I understand "feeling sorry" for the rancher but I don't feel the least bit sorry. Elk and deer do not belong on ranches or behind fences and CWD is mother natures way of saying so. CWD is a direct product of these game farms and is a bigger threat to our wild deer, elk, and domestic animals than bait piles or food plots. The farmers are scared to death of CWD and TB and point the finger at deer feeders and bait hunters yet CWD keeps showing up on FARMS. 1000 elk destroyed because of CWD found is a shame especially when we only have 150 in the wild in Wisconsin. When are we going to understand that keeping deer and elk behind fences on game farms is the worst thing we could ever do to our wild elk and deer?
