Ruffed Grouse Test Positive For Mosquito-borne Virus
19-Nov-2019

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Minnesota wildlife officials say three ruffed grouse in Itasca County have tested positive for a mosquito-borne virus. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources said Monday it is the first time the virus called eastern equine encephalitis has been confirmed to cause illness in a Minnesota wild animal. The hunters who harvested the grouse brought them to DNR staff in late October after noticing abnormal behavior in the birds. Tests confirmed two of the grouse and possibly a third were infected with the EEE virus. All the birds tested negative for West Nile virus. The EEE virus typically is found in the eastern U.S. and along the Gulf Coast, but has been found in Michigan and Wisconsin. The DNR will continue to monitor Minnesota’s grouse population for signs of the disease.

Ban On Lead Tackle, Bullets
05-Nov-2019

ST. PAUL, Minn.  — Minnesota wildlife officials have rejected a request from environmental groups to ban the use of lead in rifle bullets, birdshot and fishing tackle.The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources denied the petition Monday. DNR officials say restrictions on the use of lead ammunition and tackle should instead be considered by Minnesota lawmakers.

Minnesota Public Radio News reports environmental groups argued that lead fishing tackle and ammunition pose a threat to wildlife and human health.Petition author Tom Casey chairs Friends of Minnesota Scientific and Natural Areas, which proposed the rules. Casey says lead is “just not something that should be voluntarily introduced to our environment by hunters and fishermen and others.”The DNR says the agency believes the health and environmental impacts of lead ammunition and tackle deserve further study.
