Deer disease has food banks on edge

The discovery of chronic wasting disease in free-ranging deer in Meridian Township earlier this year has meant big changes for people who hunt in Clinton, Ingham and Shiawassee counties. And Cullimore and others are concerned that the CWD scare could slow the flow of venison to people who would otherwise have no access to a lean, nutritious source of protein.

 

Because of CWD, some local meat processors aren’t accepting deer this year. And some of those processors took part in programs in which hunters donate deer — with the processing costs paid for by programs such as Cullimore's — that end up in local food banks.
