    TB in Deer Video - by Jelen Deer Services

    In this video, Mike Allison - Director of Jelen Deer Services discusses TB testing of farmed deer with Vet - Graham Byers (The Mount Veterinary Hospital), and how stalkers may reduce the risks to themselves, and avoid transmission of the disease to other properties.

    Nice little video. It's 'veterinary surgeon' at the end

    The beauty with TB is that it is killed effectively by heating. Pasteurisation of milk was brought in for TB control. If you ensure the surface of any deer meat reaches 75 for 15 seconds the risk should be eliminated. You could wear a mask but one offering sufficient level of protection against pathogens would be expensive and impractical. A thin paper mask not worth bothering with.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    It's regularly misspelt and jumps out at me!

    How many wild deer are actually shot each year that have TB?

    Hi Wildfowler, It really is impossible to know how many may be shot each year. The reported incidences may be available from AHVLA. However, I would guess that many more are shot with TB than are reported - especially in the early stages of the disease.

    Regards,

    Mike.

    Perhaps a more appropriate question is how many get reported?
