One Response to How is chronic wasting disease transmitted? Probably by saliva!

    This is a study, not yet a result. It shouldn’t be hinted that this is “it” until the study is completed. They’ve injected saliva from infected deer directly into the mouths of healthy, captive deer as well as exposed them to the feces and urine of infected animals. The study will go 18 months or less- should be interesting to find out.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
