In addition to the foregoing, 51,343 cattle exposed to risk have been slaughtered while free from disease. In the aggregate more than 50 (50.5) in every 1,000 of the ordinary stock of cattle in Great Britain have been attacked, and to every 1,000 attacks, whose results have been reported, nearly 900 (861.3) animals perished. The epidemic has also extended to a considerable number of sheep, and since the com- mencement 4,463 are officially reported to have been attacked; of these 4,002 died or were killed, and 461 recovered or were unaccounted for. Daring the week ended 16th June 533 attacks were reported to bave occurred in Great Britain: vis., 488 in England, 27 in Wales, and 18 in Scotland. The number of attacks, viz., 533, shows a decrease of 454 on the previous re- turn.
