Animal Carcass Management [Docket No. APHIS-2013-0044]

Postby flounder » Sun Nov 03, 2013 5:53 pm

Supplementary Information Background The Animal Health Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 8301 et seq.) authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture to order the destruction or removal of animals to prevent the introduction and spread of livestock pests or diseases. Large numbers of animals and carcasses may need to be disposed of or otherwise managed during or after an animal health emergency. Examples of an animal health emergency include, but are not limited to, an outbreak of a foreign animal disease, a natural disaster, or the introduction of a chemical or radiological agent. As carcasses begin to degrade, bodily fluids, chemical and biological leachate components, and hazardous gases such as methane are released into the environment, potentially impacting the health and safety of surrounding humans, livestock, and wildlife. Therefore, the management of large numbers of carcasses during an animal health emergency must be timely, safe, biosecure, aesthetically acceptable, and environmentally responsible.

Makes sense that they destroy only Large numbers of animals and carcasses may need to be disposed of or otherwise managed during or after an animal health emergency...
Gosh that old cow that died out in the back pasture is fine to just lay there decomposing been there for several weeks now , potentially impacting the health and safety of surrounding humans, livestock, and wildlife.
