What a tragedy for the animal, and the farmer. I could not, and would not ever eat veal, but I can sympathize with a person loosing their living.

I hope it doesn't spread and I feel sorry for the farmers and their herds.

It makes my heart hurt for all of those baby lambs and their mama's who must grieve the loss of their kids.

Very sad for the animals and the farmers - those who eat lamb will find it expensive. Time to go veggie for all?

I feel sorry for the lambs but NOT the farmers All these bastards care about is money from killing these lambs.They don't care about the welfare of the lambs at all.
Go vegan if you have one once of compassion for animals.

Unfortunately, it's always the animals that suffer for the mass breeding and ultimate spread of disease in food animals.

OMGoodness, didn't think I could sob today. Progress sadly IMHO has done all of this to these little lambs. Of course the scientists will just want to clone more if it continues. WT??????????

What is really sad is that lambs are destined to prematurely die anyway & then end up on the end of someone's fork.

Heartbreaking...especially since there will never be a really happy ending for the poor sheep being raised only to be slaughtered.
