Spotlight: A death sentence

By M.D. Kittle

MADISON — Laurie Seale has spent the last three decades raising white-tailed deer on her Maple Hill Farms in Taylor County. She lost it all in the span of a few days by order of the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP).

But emails obtained by Wisconsin Spotlight suggest it didn’t have to be this way. It’s just the latest example of bureaucratic incompetence — and perhaps political retribution — in the very political Evers administration

Late last month, state Ag officials euthanized Seale’s herd of 301 deer in an effort to check the dreaded chronic wasting disease  that had been detected in a single deer nearly a year ago.

The depopulation at the northern Wisconsin farm near Gilman reportedly is the largest such effort in the history of the state’s captive cervid industry.
