Fact of the Day: Insane Bovine

Mad cow's disease was once a very serious concern, as humans who consumed dishes made from beef could potentially get the disease. The illness was unintentionally the fault of humans though, as it began when cows were fed the remains of other cattle instead of something from a plant, as cows are herbivores.

I saw a clip of some infected cows on the news a few years ago and it was the saddest thing I've ever seen. They couldn't walk and just kept falling down ...very sad.
