Here’s an unusual post for this week’s Weirdness Wednesday post: Scottish island uninhabited for decades: https://www.didyouknowdaily.com/story/operation-vegetarian\.
The small Scottish island that was uninhabitable for decades. The reason why involved cows and very unusual cakes
By 1942, with the Battle of Britain in the not too distant past, the British had successfully fought off the Nazis from the first threats of invasion, but the threat to the country remained high as the Nazis continued to sweep across Europe.
One major concern was a possible German anthrax attack being unleashed on the United Kingdom, which led to a strategy called “Operation Vegetarian”.
To be used only as retaliation in the event of such an attack, the plan involved the scattering of linseed cakes (a concentrated feed for livestock) onto the fields of Germany.
