It would be unlikely that the temperature of the fire would be successful IMO. If an autoclave won’t kill it (which i was taught that it wouldn’t) i doubt fire would with it residing in the soil. Hopefully though the fire will change the soil conditions making the prion break down quicker.
I quit putting out salt because one research paper (maybe out of Michigan) showed where prions actually lasted longer in high salinity environments. If i recall correctly, even up to ten years.
Very serious problem with no clear answers and very difficult to research. My $0.02

As stated it gets in the soil / grass and stays there.
Apparently started out West and spread from there.
I don’t understand how killing them all is the answer, it will slow the spread of the disease...maybe but there’s nothing I know of at this time that will kill the disease . Sad ...
No, the prions are heat resistant.MUP":202doi6v said:So, if properly cooked, the meat is ok then, correct?
