  • Trivia

    • When the anthrax vaccine is administered to the bull, it's given after he's shown signs of infection. However, when Pasteur's vaccine first came out in the 1800's, it was given as a preventive measure by injecting a small dosage of microbes into the livestock before they were exposed to the infection, and thereby giving their systems time to build resistance. In reality, the way it's administered here would have zero effectiveness and the bull would have died.
