Who made that cow mad? I thought they were all easy-going peaceful creatures.
To test the cow they must kill it first. I think this is overkill.
What would happen if they just did a lobotomy on the suspected cow? How much damage can it do? Will the cow not be as smart as the others in the heard? Will they forget how to make milk?
The Mad Cow thing is a little unsettling to say the least.
This is just a guess, but how does one cow get it? This is what I think happened.
In the process of making dog food, pig feed or chicken feed, I wonder if the employee cleaned the processor before the next batch. I could see the first couple of bags of Cow Feed being contaminated.
They are all praising that the cow did not go into the cow food chain and that the system worked.
I am not yet convinced. No doubt this out-brake could have been much worse. I think now that I know a little more about it I think we got lucky on this one but time will tell.
When you start to get all the facts it becomes a little less scary. But the facts are not all in yet. This is Mad Cow which can be bad enough but not the real bad one which is Hoof & Mouth. People or cows need to eat Mad Cow to get it, but Hoof & Mouth can spread to cows and large animals like deer & moose.
The system is fool proof until you hire a fool.
