Rhode Island health and environmental officials say they've learned about the death of a third calf from the same pasture in Tiverton where two other calves died.
EastBayRI reported that the calf died in June, but it didn't come to the attention of state officials until last week.
The other calves died on July 21 and on July 26. All three were kept in a pasture next to Gray's Ice Cream.
Officials don't know how any of the calves died. Two of the bodies decomposed before they could be tested. The calf that died July 26 tested negative for rabies and results from a necropsy are pending.
The calf that died July 21 bit a Massachusetts child, prompting Rhode Island officials to advise anyone who came in contact with the animal to contact the Department of Health.
