Michigan Gives TB-Zone Farmers Green Light To Kill Deer

From the _Cheboygan Daily Tribune:

_In an effort to eradicate bovine tuberculosis in the state’s deer herd the Michigan DNR is now offering a minimum of five year-round disease control permits to all livestock producers in the Michigan Department of Agriculture’s Modified Accredited TB Zone.

Translation: Every person who owns a cow or bison in this 13 county Northern Michigan zone can legally kill a minimum of five deer at any time of year with free tags provided by the DNR.

How does that sit with you?
