Description

The investigation finds gaping holes in the U.S. government's system to detect and stop the spread of Mad Cow disease here. Hundreds of suspicious animals were never tested for the disease. The government bungled the testing of the first U.S. born case of Mad Cow which was announced in June 2005. Restrictions were placed on feed to prevent the spread of this disease yet there have been no checks to ensure that these restrictions are being followed.
