I was watching the news this morning with my coffee. Someone from the Dept of agriculture has the bright idea to keep our food safer by keeping wild animals out of the fields. This will keep our food cleaner. I hope that dosen't go anywhere. I can't even keep them out of my house. (mice)Stan

That's as good as "maybe you could water it more before combining it".

What are they gonna do? Have the fence police drive around and check every farm? Just another dumb idea to control people! What set off this in the first place? Was there a big outbreak or something?

Think of the ramifications......They'll come up with some "guidelines". Then there will be programs to "educate" the farmers about the dangers of animals and birds and ways to keep them out of the fields. Then "enforcement" will come along. Don't forget the animal rights folks will get involved. They'll demand a requirement to set aside a certain percentage of your fields for habitat for the animals. So there will be guidelines, education programs and of course enforcement for the habitat issue as well. Some farmers won't be able to comply so the government will create a funding program. Guess where they'll get the money for that? The sad thing is there are people that think this is a good idea.

Don't forget the birds, Ducks bring in bird flu and hawks and eagles can bring in salmonella. I guess we will now have to raise everything inside. All we need to do is put a roof over all the farms :roll:

If it were possible to keep animals out of fields we'd need fences at least six feet tall and 1 x 2 mesh to keep rabbits and squirrels out. What do you do with climbers and tunnelers, like coon and woodchucks? All book learned and no common sense.

I realize its a silly idea but I have a six' fence around a garden and I put a shocking wire around the top to keep squirls and coons out. I had a couple of peach trees the critters were breaking all the limbs off the trees to get the peaches.

I think the govt. really needs to get together with the deer, the bear, the rabbits, the wild turkeys and the woodchucks and "negotiate" this whole thing before taking a rash actions.

They need to "Pass a bill first, so you can find out what's in it" then it will be too late.

OR..."If you like your [deer], you can keep him"

OR... Only animals under 250 lbs can stay in the fields, all animals over 250 lbs will be required to go on a diet, or they have to leave the field.

If you like those I have more... I'm with the 'Intelligence Department'.gov/whitehouse

You are correct on both counts, but it's also "Real Dumb" to vote on and pass a bill without reading it. I don't care if you are up against a deadline. It's up to the elected officials that bring the bill to the floor for a vote, to do so in a timely manner. If they don't have time to read it, they don't have time to vote. "No Tickey, No Washey"

Why don't we just pass a law that deer can't go into our gardens? AND move the deer crossings to the less traveled roads? That'll save a few lives. (and right now someone might be thinking this is a good idea!)

Are you seriously asking that? No one wants contaminated food, but simply passing a law saying wild animals can't go into or over a field isn't going to solve the problem. So, either they expect the farmers to fence billions of acres from well under ground level to 5K or so feet high to keep bird poop off or it's just another feel good, unfunded, BS law.

So the government wants to take our guns away so we can't shoot each other but we'll still die from food borne disease brought on by an overpopulation of wild animals. Folks, in case you didn't know we HUMANS harbor far, far more harmful diseases than animals, wild or otherwise do. Coincidentally, the other day I was watching some show about the diseases we can get from just being in the public. Then I got to thinking about how many times a livestock farmer gets poop or cow snot or whatever else comes out of an animal, splattered or kicked into his mouth. He wipes his mouth out on his sleeve and goes on, and he never gets sick from it. Jim

Yep all the anti biotic's and the many many drug people take to be well lets say un-sick in the long run will make a person sick. Yes there is a point of being clean but when you walk in a store and pull out some wipe thing before you touch a shopping cart that is going to far and we will as a people get to the point all you have to do it look at something and get sick and die

Don't you know it is a contradiction of terms you used?? Wisdom and Government in the same sentence is just plain and simple wrong since you know there is no wisdom in the gov any more just the rich trying to figure out how to take from the poor to get richer.
As for that idea that was like them saying that to help cut down on to many deer they should give them birth control shots

If they would take those deer crossing signs down, there would a lot less deer / car accidents. We're just concentrating the deer into that funnel crossing onto the the road.
