Public warned that lead bullets make meat toxic

In an extremely important, despite being obvious, revelation, the government of North Dakota has ordered the destruction of tons of venison, after being presented with evidence that deer shot with high velocity lead bullets are not fit for eating because of microscopic lead fragments spread throughout the body of the deer.

While the science is not new, the difference this time is that the study was done by a hunter from North Dakota, rather than by the Peregrine Fund.

Note to hunters: If you shot a deer with a lead bullet and you are planning on feeding it to your family, you are poisoning them. Throw that meat out, buy some copper bullets, go shoot another deer.
