OUTDOORS: DNR gains control of game farms

Gov. Jennifer Granholm is taking a stronger step to prevent chronic wasting disease from infecting Michigan's deer and elk. Granholm has transferred regulation of deer and elk farms from the state Agriculture Department to the Department of Natural Resources, a spokesman said Thursday.
Lt. Gov. John Cherry's office is drafting the executive order to make the change, which is supported by hunters but opposed by the Michigan Farm Bureau and the Michigan Deer and Elk Farmers Association.
