Let’s all cheer. USDA has declared U.S. brucellosis free except for Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park elk and bison.
“We must now focus our efforts on eradicating brucellosis from the free-ranging elk and bison populations in the Greater Yellowstone Area in order to protect our national cattle herd against future outbreaks of this disease.” These are the words of some Bush USDA undersecretary.
Lies. Lies. The disease is not perpetuated in these national parks.
As we comb Bush’s phony budget, I think we can find some funds to cut here unless they start to focus on real disease threats.
