Arguably-related mad cow image
Where's the alarm? Nonexistent.
A dairy cow in California has tested positive for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), customarily known as mad cow disease.
The disease is always fatal in cattle, however.And now, a 2012 case in California. It's commendable that the Department of Agriculture has developed a system for keeping track of all cows in the U.S. It's a big job.
There have been three confirmed cases of BSE in the United States, in a Canadian-born cow in 2003 in Washington state, in 2005 in Texas and in 2006 in Alabama.
Maybe the agriculture folks could take over the job of tracking of illegal aliens.
