sudden death

Please help, we've just found a calf down. She had been thrashing around, blood coming from her left eye, and backside, deficated on herself, very bloated with foam from the nose and mouth. She was fine yesterday. Any idea on what would cause this? Are these any symptoms of blackleg?

Blood on the back, side or eye aren't that important right now. She has unjured her self. The severe bloating is, that's why she is foaming at the mouth. I would poor some mineral oil down her with a long necked beer bottle or coke bottle works good. Call your Vet ASP then you will be sure to have good advice. Good luck!

Sorry! did't realize the animal was already dead. I guess the topic (sudden death) implies such! I'm the idiot!
