Cervid Industry Leaders Meet for CWD Summit

Ten national cervid leaders convened in Denver for a CWD retreat on April 19, 2017. This was not a symposium like the recent ones in Texas and Saskatchewan but a brainstorming session among several national leaders representing CWD susceptible species from the United States and Canada.
The purpose of the retreat was to define the industry’s position on the perceived future of CWD policy and work toward that goal together. Industry leaders agreed if all the national and state/provincial associations were asked for their perceived goal for CWD policy, there would most likely be over a dozen different answers.  This is a problem if the industry wants meaningful reform.
The cervid industry spends a great deal of time and money on CWD policy and research.  As far as regulations, the industry needs to consider what they want CWD policy to look like now, next year and in five to ten years from now.  The industry needs to agree on a targeted destination. Otherwise, industry associations are going in different directions with conflicting messages to legislators and policy makers. Thus, less success.
It is important American and Canadian cervid industries have similar goals for CWD policy. Otherwise, CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) and USDA APHIS use the other agency’s rules to prevent reform.  Furthermore, the different CWD species have their own nuances with policy too. Ante-Mortem testing brings a whole other realm of questions.  The recent work in Texas on ante-mortem testing in the last two years is historic.
Representatives at the retreat covered all CWD susceptible species in both nations. All regions of the continent were represented. The meeting agenda focused on global policy on the USDA federal CWD rule and program standards, responses to CWD discovery, and research.
To yield true industry sentiment, the brainstorming session was closed to only industry representatives without the government intervention. After industry produced an outline of goals, Dr. Keith Roehr, who serves as the State Veterinarian of Colorado, and his assistant Mr. Wayne East, joined the group to review the ideas and offer valuable input as a regulatory official with years of experience in a CWD state with an active cervid industry.
The participants of the meeting are as follows:
Whitetail Deer: 
Glen Dice- Pennsylvania Deer Farmers Association,
Shawn Schafer- North American Deer Farmers Association,
Laurie Seale- Whitetails of Wisconsin,
Patrick Tarlton- Texas Deer Association,
Skip West- North American Deer Farmers Association
Exotic Deer:

Elk: 
Andy Azcarraga- North American Elk Breeders Association,
Travis Lowe- North American Elk Breeders Association,
Eric Mohlman- North American Elk Breeders Association,
Ian Thorleifson- North American Elk Breeders Association.
The full report will be shared with the American Cervid Alliance Leadership Council and discussed on the council meeting conference call on May 16th. Councilmen will be responsible for distributing the report to their own association boards for feedback.

Humane Society of the U.S. Favors Fundraising over Animal Rescue

April 20, 2017

Humanewatch.org

It seems every time there’s a natural disaster, we can count on some charities trying to help and some charities trying to exploit the situation to raise money. Those with loud voices may be the bad actors, devoting resources to fundraising and PR, while other groups quietly do hard work, spending their resources getting their hands dirty.

Consider the latest from the Humane Society of the United States. This group runs sad ads on TV full of needy dogs and cats, yet gives only 1% of its money to pet shelters and doesn’t run a single pet shelter of its own. It does, however, spend tens of millions of dollars on marketing itself well, so people are under the impression that it’s a legitimate and effective group. (Our report “Looting in the Aftermath” documents several high-profile events the Humane Society of the United States exploited.)

This morning we happened to take a gander at what employment positions HSUS is trying to fill. HSUS is only trying to hire 3 people for its Animal Rescue Team. Meanwhile, it’s hiring 16 people for fundraising/marketing positions:

CALL TO ACTION
 
SUPPORT House Bill 2855 by Rep. Chris Paddie RE: Microchip ID for Captive Deer
We need your support and action TUESDAY! The House Committee on Culture, Recreation, and Tourism posted for public hearing NEXT TUESDAY, APRIL 11th on the following bill supported by the Exotic Wildlife Association.
House Bill 2855 by Rep. Chris Paddie
Relating to the identification of breeder deer by use of microchip implants.
The Committee will meet at the following time and location:
Date:               TUESDAY4/11/17
Time:              2:00pm or Adjournment of the House

SUBJECT: Support for House Bill 2855 (Microchip ID in Deer)
Dear Representative:
I am writing in support of House Bill 2855, which would allow deer breeding facilities to utilize USDA approved 840 Series Microchips as an acceptable form of identification for breeder deer held under TPWD permit. We would like to thank you for your support on this most important issue.
House Bill 2855 would allow deer breeding facilities to utilize USDA approved 840 Series Microchips as an acceptable form of identification for breeder deer held under TPWD permit. Microchip ID technology serves as the gold-standard for animal identification worldwide. Humane societies, veterinary clinics, scholastic research facilities, and international animal transportation regulations utilize microchips for permanent identification in many species of animals. The technology is widely available and the procedure for application is fast, safe, and appears to be relatively pain-free in most animals. However, the current Texas statute does not recognize microchip technology as a form of accepted identification under the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department permit issued for breeder deer.
The Committee Substitute for House Bill 2855 would simply allow a breeder the OPTION of utilizing a USDA-approved microchip or a tag for the identification of deer while in a breeding facility. The application of this technology would vastly improve the traceability and identification of permitted animal movement in captive deer. Furthermore, this legislation would recognize the continued, existing use of the tattoo on released animals to ensure hunters across the state are able to easily ID an animal born in a captive facility.
The current Texas statute falls well short of the technological advancement in identification technology. Millions of microchips are utilized in the United States to identify a wide variety of animals – including white-tailed deer in most states that allow captive farming. Microchip technology is accepted and endorsed by the United States Department of Agriculture through its Herd Certification Program across the United States. The American Veterinary Medical Association also recommends certified microchips for all species.
We thank you for your support of House Bill 2855 by Rep. Chris Paddie. This important legislation would allow for the best available identification technology to be utilized as an accepted form of identification for breeder deer held under TPWD permit.

Contact your State Senator to Vote YES on SB 740
 
SB 740 will be heard Monday, April 3, 2017 at 9 a.m. in the Senate State Affairs Committee
 
We need your help to ensure your State Senator understands how important eminent domain reform is to you and your family.
SB 740 will protect property owners if they must endure eminent domain proceedings. Texas is growing at an ever-greater pace and new powerlines, pipelines, roads and other infrastructure mean more property owners than ever will see their land taken through eminent domain.
SB 740 will allow development AND level the playing field for property owners as they protect their land against giant corporations with deep pockets, and masses of lobbyists and lawyers.
If landowners don’t act, our private property rights will continue to be lost to private corporations and government.
Call your State Senator, especially if he or she serves on the Senate State Affairs Committee and request that they take a stand for landowners and vote YES on SB 740.

Summary of SB 740 Authored by Sen. Lois Kolkhorst, courtesy of http://www.texansforpropertyrights.com
SB 740 addresses five important issues that property owners recognize as necessary. The bill includes the following provisions:
* Equal disclosure of appraisals: Some condemning entities take advantage of a loophole by providing a new or updated appraisal at the special commissioners hearing, giving the property owner no time to assess the new information. The bill would require those entities to provide the appraisal reports no later than three business days prior to a hearing, as is currently required of property owners.
* Property rights protections in bona fide offer: There are few protections in place that require condemning entities to act in good faith when negotiating with landowners. This provision would require certain information to be contained in the “bona fide” offer to allow property owners to better understand the impact of the project.
* Reimbursement of property owner’s expenses when sued on a low-ball offer: This section of the bill would require the condemning entity to pay reasonable landowner expenses if final damages awarded to the property owner in eminent domain proceedings meet or exceed 20% in excess of the condemner’s final offer.
* Bond requirement: In some cases, private condemners have declared bankruptcy and failed to pay property owners even though they are in possession of the condemned property. SB 740 would require nongovernmental condemners to post a bond in the amount of the property owners award, pay the award or deposit the award with the court prior to appealing a court judgment.
* No property taxes: Condemning entities often take possession of property to begin work prior to the exchange or title or final compensation. In this situation, the condemner has possession, but the original property owner must still pay taxes on the land. Sen. Kolkhorst’s bill would require the ending property owner to pay those taxes.
