I was thinking the same exact thing.
Unless there was a sign that said
"Oh hey sorry I was hungry, had to feed the kids!".
Things like this have been going on forever for all kinds of reasons maybe it's new to your town but not new what so ever to the US.
I think that this is left up to a persons perspective
lets say this happened to a UFO enthusiast it would be
"OH MY GOD ALIENS KILLED COW IN MY TOWN WITH LASERS THAT CUT THE MEAT OFF THE BONE!!"
Or if it happened or was told to someone who was heavy against or into the occult "OH NO SATANIST KILLED A COW IN MY TOWN FOR A SATANIC
And the list can go on whatever floats your boat the most is what you're going to first associate these things to, well some people.
No one knows why a person does these things until it comes from their mouths and to give them an easy excuse like this is rather faulty when it comes
to the world of police and even more so could damage the investigation.
Oh and if SHTF people are going to need to learn to get by and not depend on live stock anyway you're either not going to be "lucky" enough to have
it or it's going to so contaminated you're not going to want to eat it.
For those who are really worried about this they should look into what I like to call indoor farming, or indoor gardens that they can make sure the
soil is clean and pure and also have climate control and light control, and it's inside so someone would have to come in and take it.
I haven't invested in this yet as there's no need to yet.
Also get the basics beans, rice and some greens and reds/yellows then you have everything you could need and also stock up bags of rice and other
grains it will be hard at first to reduce food consumption to things like this even more so for the over consumer but if you learn moderation early
you will be able to cope a lot sooner and more be more comfortable without hunger pains and head aches, also if you feel you can't go without taste
stock up on simple spices or those little packets of flavors where you just add water they have a long shelf life and are cheap and will help
psychologically as well so things don't get to mundane that's a big part of what a food crisis is going to impact on Americans who once had it
"easy" they psychological impact because must of us don't realize what a minimum of food we can actually live on.
