given the concern with tanana valley meat and the inability to convey wanton waste, i wondered if this is a destruction of property issue.
it seems to me when you shoot an animal, the state requires punching a tag. once you punch a tag, you have inherited responsibilites imposed by the state to take care of what is now defined as your property. so game meat becomes defined by the state of alaska as your property.
if you take any of your property no matter what it is, anywhere for any service and they "ruin it" in the process of "fixing it" or "improving it" that business should be liable.
i should say i don't have meat at tvm and no axe to grind. i can't help wonder whats wrong however, with a system that can't figure out how to apply responsiblity for ruining someones game meat. such a sad waste.
what do you guys think?
