A Calf with Two Tongues & Two Noses: Pesticides Suspected Cause
Posted by honestpoet on April 18, 2007
Ugh. Don’t look at this unless you’re not squeamish. It’s a video of a calf born in Costa Rica with a mutation the vets there believe was caused by pesticides. The poor thing has two tongues, two noses, and a severely truncated jaw. It’s owner fears it won’t be able to chew, though who knows? Life usually wants to stay badly enough that it can often make do with a flawed vessel.
Either way, I think we need to seriously rethink our use of these chemicals.
ps — Don’t think that John McCain ad up top is any sort of endorsement from me, though he’s not at the bottom of my list, at least.
