As a result of the latest case of mad cow disease on a dairy farm, PETA is placing a
billboard near the Hanford, California, testing facility that found the
disease. The billboard is a parody of the ludicrous "real milk comes from cows" ads that the California Milk Processor Board pushes.
No one who eats meat is safe from mad
cow disease. Since the U.S. Department of Agriculture tests only a tiny
fraction of all the cows killed for food for mad cow disease—including cows
from dairy farms who are ground up for hamburger—there's no telling how many
animals may be infected. The only way to avoid slurping down a cup of cruelty or a dish of disease is to dump dairy products
And that won't make cows mad.
