    Hi All
    I’m just getting back on my feet. As I was posting to the local
    meteorologist, here in Phoenix, I happened onto this animal anomaly
    with regards to the mysterious Elk die-off. Apparently all states
    around Arizona have reported Elk deaths as was earlier post on this
    site from Wyoming Game and Fish, some months ago.
    Keep in mind, Wyoming game and fish reported neurotoxin as the
    probable cause, ditto on the Saw Tooth Dolphin of S Florida.
    Anyway, it’s good to be back and moving.

    Game and Fish trying to prevent spread of disease in deer, elk

    TUCSON — Concerns over chronic wasting disease has resulted in a
    change of policy from Arizona Game and Fish.

    The agency no longer is allowing wildlife rehabilitation centers to
    accept deer or elk.

    Chronic wasting disease is an incurable and 100 percent fatal
    disorder.

    So far, it hasn’t been found among deer and elk in Arizona.

    But Game and Fish says it is found in surrounding states. And
    officials say they must be extremely cautious since the disorder is
    related to “mad cow” disease and could devastate Arizona’s deer and
    elk herds.
