By JOSE BORDA. UNO correspondent GENERAL ALVEAR The technical secretary of the Provincial Office of Livestock, Eduardo Maldini, after visiting the La Daiana field in Corral de Lorca and seeing the dead Aberdeen Angus calf found nine days ago, that he found nothing abnormal about the animal's carcass beyond what normally occurs in an animal death. "I found nothing strange," stressed the official to UNO, adding that he saw "things that are common in a dead animal following a carrion bird attack." He explained that this type of bird had eaten the eyes, anus and mouth of another calf approximately one year ago. "Its only logical that there should be no soft tissue left, not even the tongue," he detailed. Regarding the hide, he stated that parts of it were scattered around the animal and there were even remnants of fecal matter from other animals. Maldini said there was no need for samples, since "there is no point to sampling, because if we wished to diagnose an infectious/contagious disease, only a few hours would have had to elapse from the animal's death, which did not occur in this case, since [the death] occured some days ago."
