"Mutant Cows Die In GM Trial"

"Genetically modified cows were born with ovaries that grew so large they caused ruptures and killed the animals.
The bungled experiment happened during a study by AgResearch scientists at Ruakura, Hamilton, to find human fertility treatments through GM cows' milk.
AgResearch is studying tissue from one of three dead calves to try to find out what made the ovaries grow up to the size of tennis balls rather than the usual thumbnail-size."

I'll cover this on my next episode.  I have nothing against "Genetic Engineering"/"Genetic Modification" in general, I want my Damselfly Wings!, I do have a problem with experimenting on other animals.  What an awful thing to happen to these cows.


  1. Isn't nearly 7 billion humans enough for this planet? Ever hear of adoption? All animal experimentation is stupid but this goes beyond that. These were six month old calfs they killed. But qouting from the article "Dr Jimmy Suttie, said he did not see the deaths as a "big deal", and they were part of the learning process for scientists." These "scientists" indeed have a lot to learn. They can start on the path to wisdom by going VEGAN and leave human fertiliy to humans.
