A YEARLING HEIFER

We have a yearling heifer. Weighs about 500 pounds. The vet says she has Bovine polio. So we give her medicine. She walks around like she has stiff legs, her head in the air; if it rains she’ll surely drown. Gave her some more medicine. She gets up, eats, drinks, runs around, jumps a fence, wants to know why we’re bothering her. Gave her some more medicine. The next morning her toes are pointed straight up, her tongue is hanging out, and she’s very much dead. I have no idea what the moral of this story is except maybe we should have stopped giving her medicine. Query: will the buzzards develop bovine polio when they snack on her? Do I have a legal duty to tell them not to? Are you really going to respond to these stupid questions? Ahh, I see.
