Has anyone other than me, ever wonder if Cattle Mutilations could be connected to Mad Cow Disease?
Interesting thought. As a UK resident, we suffered very much from BSE of course, though I can't remember particularly large outbreaks - if any - of cattle mutilations. However, the UK has quite a history of *horse* mutilations, which aren't affected (as far as I know) by BSE.
So, whilst either case (of mutilation) is distressing (and financially crippling to the owners as well) I'm not sure if there is a connection.... Well worth keeping a note of cattle mutilations however, just in case...
