Nasty damned things.

[URL="http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/florida-keys/article106338627.html"]Miama Herald: Screwworm-infected deer in ‘gory condition’[/URL]

Wish the article had thrown out some theories about how the screw worm got there. I also saw a sidebar link to a story about incinerating the carcasses, which I wondered about when the first article said the carcasses were taken to an area for "nature to take its course." Burning seems better, LOL.

Also, enjoyed this passage:

[I]Many of the deer are infected beyond rehabilitation, at which point they are put down with a bolt gun, a modified pistol with a spring-loaded steel rod that [B]causes mortality [/B]quickly after being discharged into the head of the deer, Clark said.

[/I]Emphasis mine. Who says "causes mortality" instead of "kills" or "causes death"?

Wait...Give me three guesses...

That deer's not dead. He's pinin' for the fjords.
