Who Wants Bacon?

Reston Ebola, the disease so nice they named it after a planned real estate development, has now claimed the lives of 70 pigs in the Philippines. And in the name of "science," instead of in the name of "rich savory bacon," as the Good Lord* intended.

International and domestic animal health experts slaughtered 70 pigs at an undisclosed hog farm here today as part of the mission to conduct epidemiological investigation on the recently discovered ebola reston virus (ERV) in hog farms here and Pangasinan.

The slaughtered pigs were later buried.
Good to know. Otherwise that would be gross.

* Results may vary by religion.
