Hunters across Louisiana are outraged after state health officials ordered a rescue mission to destroy $8,000 worth of deer meat because venison is not allowed to be served in homeless shelters.

I’d say any kind of road kill would be well served to these folks. Maybe some armadillo or alligator.

If it's good enough for me, it's good enough for them. Ridiculous.

But it's okay to serve "dog food" aka pink slime to our kids.

Deer meat was good enough for our ancestors here in America as they struggled to build a country but it’s not good enough for our Homeless population.

As a working person, YOU can BUY and eat food that its freshness is expiring.

But don't you dare GIVE that same food to a welfare recipient. That would be degrading.

Simple. Have one of the shelter residents get a social services attorney to sue the health dept for attempted murder via starvation.

The bad PR from the suit will get the HD to quickly change their policies.

When I worked at a grocery store in the early ‘70’s we put the good but out of date food on the dock beside the dumpster. Even though nobody was visible, it was usually gone within the hour. Farmers came by and loaded their trucks and fed it to the pigs.

We probably had more waste then because now computer control has matched deliveries to sales and date codes are more readable and stores enforce rotation better today. But waste still must be fairly high if only because of the incredible volumes of food shipped daily.

Sometime in the ‘80’s somebody sued for allegedly getting sick from eating out of a dumpster. After that locks were installed. Also, drunks would crawl into dumpsters, go to sleep and get crushed when the truck emptied it into the crusher.

The net result is that literally tons of usable but out of date food is destroyed every day.

We’ve been donating venison and feral hogs for years and they’ll take everything we give them. In TX they would have been fined for destroying the meat due to our game laws.

“Beltway” ignorance....”we can’t serve meat that is less fat, less cholesterol because it hasn’t been pumped full of pink slime!” Besides...it was probably shot with a gun.

When I lived in northern Michigan I went out with a crew led by the DNR and the local Chippewa to collect salmon that were freshly dead or dying after they spawned. They gave us a basic idea of what to look for (bright red gills and no obvious rot) and gave them a quick inspection themselves.

We took truckloads out for the poor. That was my kind of charity. Spending the day in the woods wading in the river.

The Missouri Department of Conservation encourages hunters to donate deer to the poor.

Goverment hates private charity. Gotta keep the peasants dependant on their nanny government mommy. That way it’s “vote Dem or starve”.

Well I had to look that one up and I can say yes, it seem to be made differently from house to house. The meats I use may vary but the other ingrediences usually remain the same. Pinto beans, onions, potatos, green chilies, tomato’s and a healthy dose of jalapeno’s. I’m thinking this weekend it will be elk for the meat selection.

of course not deer meat is leaner and healthier than cow meat,

however, horse meat is just fine.

I've never had a problem with venison. Sure, I killed, field dressed, butchered it myself, but I've never heard of anyone getting sick when the meat was donated. [Although, I have donated very little]

I’ve got a high school friend who is a dirt farmer. He has a deal with a major grocery store chain to compost their waste.

After all, if the meat wasn’t inspected by the government, the poor can’t eat it, right? /sarc

I lived in San Antonio, I ran a bread route, many times I´d pick up road kill on a cold day and we´d take it home and make stew. People can find many creative ways to cut costs, food stamps is a lazy persons way to exist.

Alaska has a very efficient program for getting roadkill where it needs to go. Salvage of road-kill moose gets more efficient

These are the same folks that are going to make our medical decisions. Our country has a very dark future.
