Dutch Find 6th Madcow Case for '04, Destroy 26

AMSTERDAM - Dutch authorities discovered the brain-wasting madcow disease BSE in a six-year old animal and destroyed 26 head of cattle, 25 of them from the same farm, the Agriculture Ministry said on Monday. The BSE case is the sixth this year and the 77th since the outbreak in 1997 of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), a brain-wasting disease that can spread to humans.
