Sheep found with BSE-like disease

UK - Scientists responsible for monitoring whether BSE has spread from cattle to sheep on farms are investigating an unusual form of brain disease found in a four-year-old ewe.
Tests on brain tissue at laboratories in Britain and Europe have not confirmed the condition as BSE. But results do not resemble known types of scrapie, a similar disease to BSE in cattle but not thought lethal to humans.
