The health department says 128 bucks and does were tested for contaminants across the state.Only one deer, near Clark’s Marsh, turned up with elevated levels of the perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) contaminant in its muscle tissue. There’s a ‘do not eat’ deer advisory within a 5–mile radius of Wurtsmith Air Force Base and Clark’s Marsh in Oscoda Township.Experts say there’s little scientific information on PFAS mounting up in deer. If exposed, deer may not show any signs or symptoms of sickness.Visit michigan.gov/pfasresponse for more information about PFAS in wild game and fish.  AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Traffic stop leads to meth bust in Roscommon TownshipNext Photo of the Day for Thursday, January 24last_img read more

Yuzvendra Chahal couldn’t hide his emotions after Dhoni’s dismissal in World Cup semi-final

first_imgAdvertisement o7NBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs3bgymuWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E7i4u( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) aWould you ever consider trying this?😱7vrlCan your students do this? 🌚5h1t12Roller skating! Powered by Firework Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal revealed that he ‘struggled’ to hold back his tears when MS Dhoni got out in India’s chase against New Zealand in Old Trafford at the World Cup 2019 semi-final. The youngster mentioned that the defeat was hard to digest and that he couldn’t control himself after the veteran wicketkeeper’s dismissal.Advertisement Chahal arrived at the crease after Dhoni’s effort came to an end in the 49th over during their 240-run chase against the Kiwis. The rain-afflicted semi-final saw Dhoni along with Ravindra Jadeja almost pull off a miracle with a 116-run stand which took a panicked India from 92 for 6 to 208 for 7. With MS Dhoni’s dismissal, India’s hopes of reaching the final coming to an end.Advertisement And in a recent interview, Chahal said that he tried to control his tears when he came down to bat. India were ultimately bowled out for 221 after Chahal, the last man, got out for 5.“It was my 1st World Cup and when Mahi bhai (MS Dhoni) got out and I was going in (to bat), I was trying to hold back my tears. It was so depressing.” Chahal said.Advertisement “We played so well for 9 games but suddenly we were going out of the tournament. Rain wasn’t in our hands and so it won’t be right to say anything (about the interruption). It was the first time that we really wanted to go back to the hotel as soon as possible from the ground” he further added.Despite the semi-final defeat, India came out as table toppers in the league-stage table with 7 wins in 9 matches. But the top order’s dismal performance in the game at Manchester helped New Zealand book a place in the final game of the tournament. India were reduced to 5 for 3 after Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul were dismissed for 1 each while chasing 240.  Advertisementlast_img read more
