US officials confirm 4th domestic case of mad-cow disease

The diseased animal “at no time presented a risk to the food supply or human health,” the USDA says. Officials discovered the animal at a rendering facility in central California, which they have not chosen to name. During a briefing in Washington, USDA chief veterinarian John Clifford assured reporters that the meat did not enter the food chain and the carcass will be destroyed safely. The first mad cow case in 2003, a cow from Canada shipped to the U.S., caused an extreme dip in beef exports — and some nations to restrict American beef to this day. (hat tip to Breaking News)  source

Bad Omens, Inc.: First dead birds, then fish, now …

  • 200 dead cows found on a farm in Portage County, Wisc. source

This happened just down the road from my house. It was super weird because they all died in a single night, with no warning. Even though we’ve been told the infection/virus/whatever won’t spread to other animals, people in the area are (understandably, I think) worried about their pets. And the man whose cows died recently had his barn burn down, too. I feel so bad for him.

Some local context on this weird cow thing. Very sad.
