Mad-cow suit blames Ottawa

CANADA - A $7-billion class-action suit being launched this morning on behalf of 100,000 farmers in four provinces accuses the federal government of negligently allowing "mad-cow disease" to devastate the cattle industry. The lawsuit claims that a federal monitoring program incompetently lost track of 80 out of 191 imported cows it was supposed to track in case they developed signs of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE).
