Zombie Deer Could Lead To Zombie Humans

I though we had them already. They’re called democrats.

usa today-

An infectious disease deadly in deer has spread to 24 states as experts warn the ailment – unofficially dubbed “zombie” deer disease – could one day hit humans.

Chronic wasting disease, or CWD, has afflicted free-ranging deer, elk and/or moose in 24 states and two Canadian provinces as of January, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.

“We are in an unknown territory situation,” Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, told USA TODAY on Friday.

Last week, Osterholm testified before his state lawmakers warning about possible human impacts.

“It is probable that human cases of chronic wasting disease associated with consumption with contaminated meat will be documented in the years ahead,” he said. “It’s possible the number of human cases will be substantial, and will not be isolated events.”

  1. This is something that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Especially those of us that appreciate wild game. Since libs are not likely to appreciate wild game I wouldn’t be surprised if this is being spread on purpose by libs. If this spreads to moose I’ll be upset. Tin foil hats can be stylish. Try one on. Just kidding, but I wouldn’t put anything past them.

  2. just read this to She Who Must Be Obeyed & she gasped “you mean they’re alive when they’re dead?”

  3. One thing about moose, it might be hard to detect zombie disease in them. Sorry Bullwinkle, but moose aren’t too bright to begin with.

  4. Personally I think it’s one hell of an assumption to think the deer had it first. Seems to me theres a good chance they got it from the Democrats.

    It is in moose, yes.
    There is also ‘brain worm’ in moose, though that isn’t usually fatal. I had a car attacked by a moose once that had that. I had just missed hitting it, and it turned around and took out my windshield with his head. There was moose slobber all over the car. Knocked an outside mirror off and bent the side pillar along the glass. I went to the state police to report it, and they said the moose was probably fine and they wouldn’t look for it.
    The CWD is a prion disease, which is super scary stuff. It isn’t alive, and can’t really be destroyed, even by incineration, unbelievably. Sulfuric acid might do it though. If it does cross over to humans, it will be very bad news.

  6. I smell bullshit. USA today is fake news and then we have this:

    “director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, told USA TODAY on Friday.”

    Really?

    A fake research center that bilks taxpayers out of research funding.

  7. toby, damn moose, they are big enough that they can do a lot of damage, and they are too stupid to reason with them. I’ve had a couple incidents involving moose and I’m fortunate that they ended as harmlessly as they did.

    It ain’t ass and it ain’t pussy. A taint. That region between the vagina and the asshole.

  10. Just dont eat the brain and its okay to consume wild meat, infected or not. CWD may infect game populations (usually deer) but according to my veterinarian wife they will eventually build a natural defense against it. Here in Colorado it started moons ago when a test pen of sheep were able to go nose to nose with wild mule deer, giving them the disease, and of course the CDOW went nuts trying to eradicate any deer with perceived CWD using it as a way to justfy their existence while expanding their oversight. Years later we are not seeing much of it anymore.

    an interesting, and possibly unique thing about moose- they don’t have a retinal reflection. That is what causes you to see deer’s, and other animal’s, eyes ‘glow’ at night when a light is shone on them. Their retinas don’t reflect the light. That makes them dangerous at night for cars, etc. Springtime, when the young are cast off by momma moose and wandering around looking for their own territory is an especially dangerous time. And they are big.

  12. toby, here is a no shit story, so you know it’s true. On a four lane, divided highway, there was a Mustang driving the opposite direction than me. I saw clearly as this Mustang was getting closer to me, a moose on a dead run came out of nowhere. The Mustang had no chance for an evasive move. The Mustang hit the moose at what looked like all four ankles, took its feet from under it, and the Mustang went underneath the moose. The moose slid across the ice and snow covered highway and into the median. Got to his feet, shook his head and took off running. The Mustang had a couple bumper dents and moose hair in a couple places and that was all the damage there was, except for having to change pants. And that is a true story, no shit.

  13. Camperfixer,
    That’s what I had heard as well. The “wasting” was in the brain and nerves, not in the muscle. Not sure about organs.

    just sayen, I’m not eating that shit. Your’e speculating. I’ll be shooting rabbits and ducks. This isn’t new. I’m not hearing any thing concrete from some one I would believe. Sounds like UK mad cow disease. Just wondering how in the hell it showed up here?
