Yes, though it seems that much of the current epidemic can be tracked to
one shipment of illegally imported meat from asia. While it became an
epidemic mostly, it seems from the poor systemic practices, whether this
original vector was intentional to an agenda or not, or whether other
parties helped spread it, remains to be seen. I have merely been
reporting what some farmers are claiming, which, while entirely
circumstantial, is something to be concerned about.
