200 cows were found dead in a Wisconsin field Friday.
The die-off in Stockton, Wis. comes after similar mass kills around the world — beginning with the 5,000 blackbirds that dropped dead in Beebe, Ark. — ignited conspiracy theories earlier this month.
UPI reports that the farmer who owned the cattle believes the cows died of a virus. He told deputies he had been working with a veterinarian and guessed that the animals died of infectious bovine rhinotracheitis or bovine virus diarrhea.
The Portage County sheriff’s department said there is no threat to humans or other animals.
