100,000 Cows Bound for China

Last Updated: April 23, 2012

The Wall Street Journal reports:

In one of the largest transoceanic cattle drives in history, as many as 100,000 heifers from Uruguay, Australia and New Zealand will board multistory cattle-carrying ships this year—bound for China.

Terrifying. The worst possible move for an overpopulated and aging country with declining water resources. I can’t imagine a more effective way to increase the chances of civil unrest a decade from now. (Via Simon.) Link.
