PETA Takes On California’s Mad Cow Scare

Written by Michelle Kretzer | April 26, 2012

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 meat.

And that won’t make cows mad.
