It Was a Hot August Afternoon...
Anthony C. Steyermark
A farmer becomes concerned after discovering a number of dead animals on his small farm, including some ducks, several deer, and a coyote, all within a single week. Fearing that someone might be poisoning his land, he calls in a veterinary pathologist to investigate. The case is designed to teach students in an upper-division comparative anatomy and physiology class about the central nervous system.
