    Default at least they didn't fall from the sky...200 dead cows found

    First the birds, then the fish now the cows


    200 dead cows found on town of Stockton farm
    BY CARA SPOTO • FOR THE DAILY TRIBUNE • JANUARY 15, 2011

    TOWN OF STOCKTON -- The Portage County Humane Society is trying to figure out what caused 200 cows in the town of Stockton to die.



    According to a Portage County Sheriff's Department news release, deputies were dispatched to the town just after 1 p.m. Friday after they were notified of numerous dead cows lying in a field in the 8000 block of Fourth Avenue.

    The owner of the cattle allegedly told deputies that he had been working with a local veterinarian and suspected that the animals died from the either the IBR or BVD virus.

    According to Cattletoday.info, IBR -- infectious bovine rhinotracheitis, or red nose -- is an acute, contagious virus that usually occurs in the air passages of a cow's head or its windpipe.

    Cattle of all ages that have not been vaccinated or have not recovered from the disease are susceptible to IBR, the website states.

    BVD -- Bovine Virus Diarrhea -- can cause numerous problems, according to the site, such as damage to a cow's digestive and immune systems, pneumonia, abortions, calf deformities and other symptoms.

    Samples of the dead animals were sent to Madison for testing.

    Neither the sheriff's department sergeant who wrote the news release nor the humane society officer who took the farmer's statement could be reached for comment Friday evening when information about the incident was released to the media.

    Attempts to reach a large-animal veterinarian also were unsuccessful at that time.

    The investigation is being handled by the Portage County Humane Society.

    According to the Portage County Sheriff's department, there is no threat to humans or other animals.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    In a non-related note, I watched "The Core" last night and couldn't help but think of recent events during the Trafalgar Square scene.
