Meat of ill animals is boiled and served in Russia

While Englishmen and Frenchmen kill animals, contaminated with foot and mouth disease, residents of Russia eat this meat. “According to our rules, we should not annihilate the animals. Though when we have to do it, the meat is served. When it is boiled thoroughly, it is not dangerous,” one of newspapers of Nizhny Novgorod cites Anatoly Bobilyev, the main veterinary inspector, as saying. The latest outbreak of the disease occurred in 1984. It covered 1,400 cows. All the meat has been served, and nobody has contracted the disease. At the same time, the doctor warned the citizens against the swindlers, who sell bottles of river water in the guise of a vaccine against the foot and mouth. He said that if necessary the vaccination will be carried out by the state free.
