Default Canada Finds Another Mad Cow

Read about it he

http://winnipegsun.com/News/Canada/2...3/5964651.html

Although Canada continues to find mad cows,
the U.S. has slashed its testing program
from 759,000 animals tested during 2004-2006,
to about 40,000 per year since then.

The USDA presently refuses to allow private
companies to test for BSE in their cattle,
because that would reveal the true extent
of the epidemic in U.S. herds.
