FMD Update... From England..... : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

If anyone is interested:

Someone on the BHM board posted the article which caused me to raise all the hoopla a while ago.... Ken S....others.... you could be of GREAT assistance over there...

Please go, if you would!

I also posted to them that they should have a look at our threads here on the subject.

They will decide it is a vast government conspiracy over there. Some will want to talk it to death, others will use their guns to shoot it up if comes near them.

That's what I'm thinking.... And here, too...

CNN this morning finally had something on the VT scrabies (sp?) thing, Our newspaper confirms (?) that the sheep from VT are being shipped to Iowa. I've heard 3 different states mentioned, but Iowa seems to have the most votes thus far....

There was also something about an island off the East Coast that the Military gave over to the USDA several years ago - they are experimenting with new vaccines... RNA replacement and synthetic virus stuff.... Didn't say how close they are to answers though. Not sure how I feel about RNA and synthetics, but.....

Faillace's sheep siezed this morning - at least that's the impression from CNN. I tried to send an email on the site Kate left for them, but it was returned.

Also on CNN this morning:

Two confirmed reports of FMD in the Netherlands.... report on the 1984 outbreak in Mexico, and two cases of 'positive symptoms' of BSE in Minnesota, but no testing done as of yet.

Its getting to the point I don't really want to know what's going on anymore!! But... Curiosity and morbid desire will win out... This might be one of those cases where what you DON'T know might hurt you...
