Some people are just plain stupid.... My lease is just south of Carbon off of hwy 6 in Eastland county.. Possible Deer Poisoning in Eastland County Tuesday, 03 November 2009 16:29 | Author: Press Release | Outdoors The Texas Agriculture Extension Office in Austin is advising all area health care providers of a poisoning in Eastland County 2 weeks ago. A ranch south of Carbon tried to kill wild hogs by mixing deer corn with a pesticide called Temik, which is a Neuro-Toxin. The rancher spread a very large amount of mixed corn on their 2000 acre peanut crop to kill wild hogs, and it turns out that deer where feeding on the same ranch. With the opening of deer season this weekend, authorities are asking hunters not to eat ANY venison meat harvested in south Eastland County until further notice. Any deer appearing sick or stumbling should be avoided. Though ingested levels would have to be high in a deer, ducks, and hogs to seriously affect humans, authorities note it is very toxic and possibly fatal. State and federal investigations are in progress. Further questions and concerns can be directed to Michael Hare with the Austin Ag Ext. Office 512-475-3305.
