animals like cows, which have seven stomachs for a reason (and eating their own dead is not one of them), should not be feed their own.
Besides, dead, dying, diseased cattle are not only feed to other cattle, but there is constant cross-spieces remnant going on too. I also read that
animals that are euthenised at animal clinics also end up in animal feed.
Taking that into consideration, I am not surprised at the bizzare viruses that have developed in living animals.
