I thought, "the dying eagles stagger just like the cows in Britian, they
are no doubt eating dead diseased animals with similar symptons and no
known causative agent can be found : BINGO, there just might be a prion
disease for birds too " and moved on until NOVA reaired "The Brain Eater"
show which I had missed first time around. In the NOVA program, they were
looking at US cattle for a native version of BSE to little avail.
I don't know anything much about this area as I am an engineer by training
but the similarities are obvious even to the novice. Since the Arkansa
program ended with the mystery unsolved, I ask those of you on the list who
are experienced in this field, could a prion type disease explain the die
offs of Bald Eagles in Arkansas?
