Calesi Viruus...well thats made my day

Apparently the latest strain of this virus that was released a few months ago did not have a very good uptake so the "scientists" scratched their heads and took a closer look at their release and distribution method.

Turns out the virus was "re-mixed" with water so it could be sprayed...and they used chlorinated water!

Yay

Were was this remixed? If the original vials were diluted on the farms where it was distrubuted to other farmers in any given area, which were many, there woould have been no clorination. Not on all of them anyway because a lot of farms dont have clorinated water.

If original vials were remixed at a cetral point on a clorinated water supply, and then distributed to the farms where it was then sprayed on the carrot that was then picked up on the same day by all the farmers in the area, then the virus being dead before it was sprayed onto the carrot is a possible scenario.

Another worry for me  this is that we drink clorinated water everyday. What is it doing to our very important gut bacteria which affect our overall health in a huge way..

I can answer this...provided in test tubes and mixed with water at Council Depots by field workers then spread over the carrots...

I wonder if that was the policy every area.  I must investigate further, but thanks for that.

If true then major cockup visible..  Grin

Affected farmers from this failed release should really be asking questions through their local council representative...my pick would be using a mover and shaker shooting from the hip character like Michael Laws...Lots of trouble brewing at ORC and now would be the optimal time for farmers to get together on the rabbit issue and take on Council IMO...go over the top of the spin doctor managers they produce is the only way to sort the matter or at very least get some semi genuine answers!!!

Probably the same "scientists" that criticised farmers for the original release saying that if it was left to us it would have been much more coordinated and successful....blah, blah blah.

Bellies full of humble pie...The one positive with this epic stuff up is they make the first release by farmers look like a total miracle lol....maybe some knight hoods in order!!!!!!!! Grin

I am with you on this one bro.  On a similar note I have stopped using Aquatabs in the bush.  Just boil it or if it looks clean I just drink it and stop worrying.  My home water (Selwyn) is not chlorinated but they just chlorinated the Christchurch water and it was a huge stuff up with incorrect level higher than a swimming pool etc etc.
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

saw 3 rabbits tonight in a wee reserve I shoot...managed to pot one of them that was silly enough to sit still .410 insert in the .12ga did the bizo quite nicely...she was in milk so had a nest somewhere and also had 5 inside so pretty good value from the single round fired.

Lead poisoning seems to be more effective than the virus.  Cheesy
