Check your Deer livers and lungs
« on: October 21, 2019, 04:21:57 PM »
I wanted to post an FYI for anyone who hunts in Wolf country. A neighbor to our property had a nephew shoot a buck and when they gutted him the liver had white lesions all over it. He called a biologist he trusts that deals with his wolf/cattle issues.  Apparently the wolves have a tapeworm that can transfer to deer and to humans as well if you don't cook the meat thoroughly. The Bio said to inspect Liver and Lungs for the lesions. He will let me know when the tests come back and I will update.

Tapeworms happen in beef, pork, dogs, bears, wolves, cats, mountain lions, etc.  The most common way for an animal to get tapeworm is to swallow an infected flea.   But there are quite a few different kinds of tapeworms.  They're present in deer across the USA.
