Restaurant Closed For Tainted Deer Meat PDF Print E-mail

People have eaten deer meat since cavemen days, so this recent story shouldn’t be that shocking. However a city health department shut down a restaurant for serving it.

The reason was that employees found the deer as roadkill, not knowing how long it had been dead or if it had any diseases. Of course, that endangered the restaurant’s customers. But, hey, as schoolkids, didn’t we have to read the James Fenimore Cooper book, “The Deerslayer”, all about the guy named Natty Bumppo and his “Leatherstocking Tales”? We’re sure his hosiery  wasn’t made of nylon.
