NRA meets EPA:
I hope the new head of the EPA is doing lots of reading.
NRA Policy: OK to Shoot the Geese.
EPA Policy: OK to Eat Toxic Killed Geese.
Limitation Policy: Just dont eat more than 60.
“Hunters who shot snow geese in southwest Montana the week of Nov. 28 — when thousands landed and died in the Berkeley Pit — can safely consume the geese, an Environmental Protection Agency toxicologist said recently.
EPA’s assessment that the geese are safe to eat is based on certain assumptions — including that a hunter will not consume more than 60 snow geese that landed on the pit’s toxic waters, said Susan Griffin, EPA’s Denver-based toxicologist. That assumption is based on Montana’s annual bag limit for goose hunters.”
