Deer carrying Covid antibodies
 
This from the Wellsville, NY newspaper, 8-18-21.

http://www.wellsville.daily.com

Thought it was worth sharing with the folks here.


I am not surprised at all...

Had a long conversation with a NY DEC biologist at the county fair a few days prior. Declines in game populations have become a major concern.

Yet very few studies (due to budget cuts) delve deep into diseases.


Habitat - "Build it and they shall come." Not the cure all it has always been touted to be

Not long ago, in my old hometown in western PA. Penn State had a lecture concerning CWD, and the fact that it is transferable to human beings.

All of us should be very concerned and aware. Wild game makes up much of the protein that we eat, and feed our families.


Those of us that spend lots of time in the outdoors, see the wild game population changes first hand. Especially those long in the tooth.

Bob,


The day the article was printed in the Wellsville Daily Reporter, I was able to open and read it. Now we can find the article, but cannot open it.


I should have bought the newspaper when I was down that way on the 18th. Hopefully the article will be in print in another newspaper.




Best regards
Vince

Forty percent of the deer sampled in Michigan were found to contain SARS-COV-2 antibodies. NO animals were determined to have active infections or evidence of past infection or disease. The samples came from several northern Michigan counties. SARS-COV-2 active virus particles are common in human waste. I read this as evidence that poor sewage disposal via leaky ancient septic systems has contributed to exposure. Municipal waste treatment facilities have been documented to destroy the coronavirus during tertiary effluent treatment.

Two-thirds of Michigan deer had COVID-19 antibodies in federal study (fox2detroit.com)

Thanks for the info RL.

The more that we know about it the better.

Eight out of nine deer sampled in Ohio and tested at Ohio State University's veterinary medicine labs. were found to be infected, too.
