Donated Deer Meat Destroyed At Louisiana Shelter
The story comes out of Shreveport where a homeless shelter got a donation of venison from Hunters for the Hungry. Then, in a strange turn, a state health inspector took the meat from the shelter, threw it in a dumpster and then poured bleach on it to make certain that it would not be served to the homeless. The final cost? $8,000 for the shelter to replace the meat with something for the homeless to eat there.
According to regulations, donated meat from a hunter doesn't meet state regulations for distribution to the public. This was the reason for the meat being destroyed.
What do you think? Should the state have done this? What should be done now?
