Japan Has 15th Case of Mad Cow Disease

JAPAN - Japan has confirmed its 15th case of mad cow disease in a cow from the country's north, the government said Saturday. The 8-year-old Holstein cow was already dead when it was brought in for testing from a ranch in Hobetsu, Hokkaido state earlier this week. Preliminary tests indicated it had the fatal brain-wasting disease, and more precise tests conducted at a state-run research center near Tokyo confirmed those results, the Agriculture Ministry said in a statement.
