The FL state veterinarian said a high dosage of selenium, caused the death of the 21 polo horses owned by Venezuelan Victor Vargas, president of Venezuela's Banco Occidental de Descuento.
Selenium is a mineral essential for cell function. A spokesman for the state of FL, Terence McElroy confirmed the story, and it looks like Franck's Pharmacy of Ocala was the guilty mixologist!
The flu conspiracy was this: Vials of a missing virus disappeared from a lab in Maryland:
The vials contained samples of Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis, a virus that sickens horses and can be spread to humans by mosquitoes. In 97 percent of cases, humans with the virus suffer flu-like symptoms, but it can be deadly in about 1 out of 100 cases, according to Caree Vander Linden, a spokeswoman for the Army's Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases
Must of been a bear's conspiracy!
