Quarantine? Don’t They Know What Mad Cow Disease IS?

U.S. Quarantines Calves From Diseased Cow:

U.S. officials have quarantined two calves from the Washington cow with mad cow disease, even though transmission of the disease from mother to calf is considered unlikely.

Quarantine? Mad Cow disease is not an infectious virus! Quarantining the cows doesn’t do ANYTHING to prevent the disease from spreading. Are they trying to make the public think they’re doing something about this? How about ACTUALLY doing something about it? How about banning the feeding of dead sick animals to other animals? How about banning the feeding of animals AT ALL to vegetarian animals?! DUH!
