They are pushing the same type of thing through in Michigan. Just a way to pick away at our business and not about facts. Just like CWD.

Cervid: Deer Farming
My question for all this, is the distinction between a domestic pig and a ferrel pig the fact that one is fenced in a pen in a barn yard and the other is unfenced or fenced in a preserve? I would then play the DNA card to the game commission. Scientifically speaking there in no difference between the pigs. SO, I would dare the game commission to prove that it is not a domestic pig. If it looks like a pig, smells like a pig...it must be a pig. NOT A FERREL !!



We have the same issue here in WV with the arguement of slaughtering our whitetails for venison sales. They will not allow a whitetail to be sold on the market. BUT, I can sell other cervid species for slaughter. SO, I am not AIing my does with mule deer semen to create half breeds. These offspring can now be sold for venison.



These agencies can't argue with science and DNA markers.
