Health Dept.: Homeless Can’t Eat Deer Meat | FOX News & Commentary: Todd Starnes

This may not be about foreclosures but it relates to the very real problem of government being controlling to the point of stupidity.  I hope someone sues to get the $18K worth of WASTED meat back!

Health Dept.: Homeless Can’t Eat Deer Meat | FOX News & Commentary: Todd Starnes: "The Dept. of Health and Hospitals ordered the staff at the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission to throw 1,600 pounds of donated venison in garbage bins – and then ordered then to douse the meat with Clorox – so other animals would not eat the meat.
“Deer meat is not permitted to be served in a shelter, restaurant or any other public eating establishment in Louisiana,” said a Health Dept. official in an email to Fox News. “While we applaud the good intentions of the hunters who donated this meat, we must protect the people who eat at the Rescue Mission, and we cannot allow a potentially serious health threat to endanger the public.”
That statement set off a firestorm among hunters and lawmakers who called it outrageous and insulting.
“That’s a mild understatement,” said Richard Campbell, one of the founders of Hunters for the Hungry, a group that has been donating wild game to shelters since 1993. “Hunters are going nuts over it. It’s created an outrage across our state and even over into Mississippi.”"
