Horror, especially for the cows … 😔
A new case of BSE (bovine spongiforme encephalopathie) has been found on a dead cow in the Netherlands.
This is commonly known as ‘mad cow disease’ which is ableist. The cows are not ‘mad’.
A common sign of BSE in cows is incoordination. A sick cow has trouble walking and getting up. A sick cow may also act very nervous or violent, which is why BSE is often called “mad cow disease.”
The last case of BSE in the Netherlands dates from 2011.
