'Mad cow' tests on Scottish goat

UK - Scientists are carrying out tests on a Scottish goat suspected of having had mad cow disease. The animal died in 1990 at the height of the bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) outbreak among UK cattle. If confirmed, it would be the second goat to test positive for BSE following reports last month that a French goat which died in 2002 had the disease.
