I don't think bears suffer from that Doug. I'll stick with fermenting apples as the cause.

Every mammal can suffer from that. BSE is the "Mad Cow" version. Creutzfeltd-Jakob (sp?) is the human form.

Let your stubby little fingers do the walking Bacon boy. They could use the exercise.

Not the way it works. You made a comment, you have to support it. It does not work the other way around you lazy bum. :) Unless you are Wardd of course.:)

You desire a citation (i.e., more information) but refuse to satisfy your own desire? And then call someone else lazy? Really?
Well, just to make sure that your desire for further information is sated (or at least teased):

Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs), also known as prion diseases, are a group of progressive conditions that affect the brain and nervous system of many animals, including humans. According to the most widespread hypothesis they are transmitted by prions, though some other data suggest an involvement of a Spiroplasma infection.[1] Mental and physical abilities deteriorate and myriad tiny holes appear in the cortex causing it to appear like a sponge (hence 'spongiform') when brain tissue obtained at autopsy is examined under a microscope. The disorders cause impairment of brain function, including memory changes, personality changes and problems with movement that worsen over time. Prion diseases of humans include classic Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease, new variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (nvCJD, a human disorder related to mad cow disease), Gerstmann–Sträussler–Scheinker syndrome, fatal familial insomnia and kuru. These conditions form a specrtum of diseases with overlapping signs and symptoms.

Transmission occurs when healthy animals consume tainted tissues from others with the disease. In recent times a type of TSE called bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) spread in cattle in an epidemic fashion,
I'm sure that if you were still curious that you could easily follow the other links in that article - TME, CWD, FSE, EUE, CJD, GSS, FFI, etc.

Hey Uncle duke..He made a general statement. Most here when facing that, have to cite something to prove or disprove what one has written.Then again Wardd doesn't. He is exempt. If I had made a similar statement, I would have to prove it. Different stokes for different folks must, I guess, apply here.
Bovine or spongiform encephalitus ( cow disease) as far as I know has not hit any wild animal including bears. Nor has it been documented. I've looked..If he can prove it, fine..

I don't have to prove anything, any more than you do Jaime. If you feel the need to reinforce your assertions, then by all means, do so.
Just because you don't believe me, doesn't mean I'm wrong.
