Fortunately in this case, authorities seem to know exactly what killed these poor cows.
The Portage Country sheriffs department says the cattle died due to a virus that causes respiratory and reproductive problems. Investigators believe there is no threat to other animals or people in the area.
Obviously, just like every other mass animal death report we've heard in the last month, this case is not related to any of the other animal deaths occurring around the globe.
That's a relief, but we still can't help but think…what if they are?
Only time will tell and
when if the world explodes, we can say, "We may not have told you so, but had a sneaking suspicion!"
