Louisiana Fawns Fathered By Illinois Trophy Buck

by | May 14, 2012

After Mike Toney shot and killed a massive Illinois preserve buck in November, he put its testicles on ice and took them to the Louisiana State University AgCenter's research station in Clinton, La., where the semen was extracted using a new technique. The semen was frozen in liquid nitrogen and since then, 16 does were inseminated with six becoming pregnant. According to the article, LSU attorneys are investigating if the process may be patented and licensed.—courtesy Associated Press and outdoorpressroom.com
