It's a wild story.
A wild animal story.
A wildlife story.
A Division of Wildlife story.

The-Daily-Record.com - Deer farming may soon be under Department of Agriculture's control
excerpt from above:
Quote:
The Ohio House and Ohio Senate are looking into changing the regulation of deer farming from the Ohio Division of Wildlife to the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

The Division of Wildlife is not taking the potential change lightly.
In the Senate, Bill 225 was introduced by our own Senator Bob Gibbs, R-Lakeville, while Mark Okey (D-Carrollton) is leading the House charge, with state Rep. Ron Amstutz (R-Wooster) a co-sponsor.
Basically, HB 410 and SB 225 want to take away the regulating of captive cervids...

The Division of Wildlife feels it is ideally suited to look out for its best interest and those of the deer farmer, and the deer farmers, along with people such as Senate Bill 255 sponsor Sen. Bob Gibbs (R-Lakeville), feel it's the Department of Agriculture that's most qualified.

"With the expertise we have, we should be the folks overlooking captive cervid facilities," said Division of Wildlife biologist Dr. Mike Tonkovich.

The two sides have been butting heads for years, and when the deer farmers were worried about losing their industry, they looked elsewhere for help...

I figured there was something up with this, toledoblade.com --, "Wildlife's Marshall said in the wild a disease like CWD migrates about a mile a year, but in the transport and trade of captive-raised animals, "a sick deer could move at 60 mph in the back of a truck."
