Another important issue for those in WMU 65. Sharing an email from Kemptville MNRF

On behalf of Domaine du Cervin and the owner of 4 escaped Red Deer / Elk
Hybrids (all female), Mr. Samuel Gutknecht, we would like to inform you
that as part of the recovery plan associated with this escape, that
local hunters (with a valid small game hunting licence) are being
requested to dispatch (kill) these animals, if the opportunity presents
itself.  The Ministry has requested that any animal that is dispatched
be immediately reported to either Mr. Gutknecht and/or our Kemptville
District office and that the head be submitted to the Ministry for
disease testing.

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to reply or
