Unfortunately, many herbivores these days receive foods that are not part of their natural diets, hence, "Mad Cow" disease. These animals are thrown every scrap whether from plant or animal in an effort to add cheap bulk and protein to their diets... One can never be to sure what the food on your plate was fed before it reached your plate.
