Board of Animal Health’s Oversight of Deer and Elk Farms (Apr 20th)

The Board of Animal Health is responsible for protecting the health of Minnesota’s domestic animals, including farmed deer and elk. We found that the board has failed to enforce some laws related to deer and elk farms, and we make several recommendations for improvement. Additionally, we found that the board has a strained relationship with the Department of Natural Resources (which manages wild deer and elk), and we recommend that the two agencies draft a memorandum of understanding to facilitate communication and data sharing.
