Adding Rex Stout  
to the list of authors who Make Shit Up. Still, he writes a good story (yes, Archie Goodwin is racist, and Nero Wolfe probably is, too, but more subtly. I take the era in which the books were written into account), so I will continue reading him.

In Some Buried Caesar, he has both a bull and a human die from being injected with anthrax cultured from another bull. Which would be fine, except that they die within minutes of being injected.

I'm thinking the bull died within a couple of hours. The human was confronted, went to his truck and injected himself, and came back to write out his confession before he died in 20 minutes. Assuming I didn't misread it.
