Isolated cases or something more alarming?
Concerns over mass animal deaths continue to mount with the news that around 200 cows have mysteriously been found dead in Wisconsin, as well as hundreds of seals washing ashore dead in Labrador, Canada.
The cows were reportedly killed by a mystery infection, with officials still unable to identify the exact cause after samples were sent to laboratories in Madison for analysis.
According to reports, the owner of the cattle told sheriff’s deputies he suspects the cows succumbed to IBR (infectious bovine rhinotracheitis) or BVD (bovine virus diarrhea). Both diseases can cause respiratory and reproductive problems.
