Got milk? Mad cow disease found in California dairy cow

     April 24 (Bloomberg) -- A case of mad cow disease has been found in a dairy cow in central California, John Clifford, the USDA’s chief veterinarian, told reporters today in a briefing in Washington.
     The animal was found at a rendering facility, Clifford said. Its meat did not enter the food chain and the carcass will be destroyed, Clifford said. This is the fourth confirmed case of the brain-wasting disease in the U.S. cattle herd since the first was discovered in December 2003 in an animal that came from Canada.
But, hey, there probably aren't any documented cases of people getting mad cow disease through milk.  The hormones and antibiotics probably kill the disease anyway.  Drink up!

UPDATE: Your USDA-factory-farm-complex at work.

I would venture that the cow was infected by some mad occupier type Californian.

Speaking of edible animals, that's cute how the commies dropped the Romney dog issue after it got out that Obama used to eat the bastards.

Obama: "Mama, what is with this dog we is eatin'?

ObamaMama: "Dog is the scourge of the land. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sauté it. There's, um, dog kabobs, dog creole, dog gumbo, pan fried, deep fried, stir fried. There's pineapple dog and lemon dog, coconut dog, pepper dog, dog soup, dog stew, dog salad, dog in potatoes, dog burger, dog sandwich. That's, that's about it."

Maybe teaching racial division and hatred wasn't such a good idea after all
