It does but I think the answer is wrong and on the DSC 1 feedback sheet I told them so!This question actually comes up in the DSC1 manual - they recommend incineration of the doe carcass as there is no way to know if blood poisoning has occurred in the doe carrying the dead foetus, therefore it is unfit for human consumption.
+1, I was on a cull last year when one of the lads shot a sika hind with one in,god it dont half pong if you split it open! apparently it's not that common so i was lucky to see one especially as i'm due to do my DSC1 next month, i think its all very well buying all the books, educational dvd's etc but there is no substute for actually seeing these rarities for yourself, come to that i think that anyone looking to take their DSC1 should try and get experiance gralloching etc beforehand if possible.It does but I think the answer is wrong and on the DSC 1 feedback sheet I told them so!
If there is no associated peritonitis, local nodes ok and the carcase sets then I would eat it. Obviously if lots of local reaction then I wouldn't. I've sent plenty of cows to slaughter containing mummies and they have all passed meat inspection.
Heartily agree, I have thoroughly enjoyed learning all the stuff for DSC1 but am very well aware that it is JUST the theory and very often experience can tell you a LOT more Interesting points about the foetus, I think the manual may well be being careful and it does say in there "there MAY be a possibility of blood poisoning from the foetus" and I think they are going with the safest bet of destroying it just in case - obviously someone who really knows their stuff and can check the rest of the carcass for signs would be able to clear it without any problems, but for the novice it's probably safer it is destroyed just in case.come to that i think that anyone looking to take their DSC1 should try and get experiance gralloching etc beforehand if possible.
