Scots goat might have suffered mad cow disease

UK - A goat that died in Scotland 15 years ago may have had mad cow disease, scientists said yesterday, although further examination was needed. Scientists from the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs carried out tests on a stored sample of tissue from the dead goat following the discovery of BSE in a goat in France last month - the first known case of the fatal brain-wasting disease in a type of livestock other than cattle.
