The Sportsman's Corner
A Couple of Bits and Pieces
May 14, 2020
A month ago, I wrote that the Unified Sportsmen of Pennsylvania (USP) was continuing to back the research of Dr. Frank Bastian and that Bastian's work needs financial support.
When the PA Department of Agriculture recently awarded $1 million in funding for CWD research in three chunks, Bastian's group did not receive any money. Instead, two of the three awards went to researchers associated with the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, which has entered a working relationship with the Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC) to combat diseases in animals, including CWD.
