The U.S. (USDA) announced today that foot-and-mouth disease has now been identified in five states and is impacting the availability of milk and meat in some parts of the country. The disease was first identified two weeks ago on a dairy farm in central Wisconsin . It is a highly contagious and debilitating livestock disease.
Below is a picture of what cows look like that have been infected with this disease. If you see any cow that looks like this, DO NOT approach the animal. Run away as fast as possible!
