Louisiana Forces Homeless Shelter To Destroy $8,000 Worth Of Deer Meat →

Louisiana’s State Health Department forced a homeless shelter to destroy $8,000 worth of deer meat because it was donated from a hunter organization. …

[T]he Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission lost 1,600 pounds of venison because the state’s Health Department doesn’t recognize Hunters for the Hungry, an organization that allows hunters to donate any extra game to charity.

“We didn’t find anything wrong with it,” [said] Rev. Henry Martin. “It was processed correctly, it was packaged correctly.” …

“They threw it in the dumpster and poured Clorox on it,” said Martin.

Government in a nutshell: largely unchecked power harming peaceful, consensual exchange - including charity - under the pretense of it all being “for our own good.”

And government interfering with the feeding of the hungry isn’t only a problem in Louisiana: it happens in New York City, Orlando, Houston, Dallas, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, and elsewhere.
