New Mad-Cow Case Detected in Canada Bull

Canada has confirmed its tenth case of mad cow disease after a "mature" bull from the province of Alberta has been tested positive – Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) announced Wednesday. //

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said that the infected animal’s carcass is in their control and also confirmed that no part of it had entered the human food or animal feed systems. However, the agency did not reveal where the animal was found or how old it was.

When Mad Cow disease, or Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) gets transmitted to people, who eat infected animals, they are at risk of contracting a rare form of deadly brain disease known as Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD).

About 150 people worldwide, most of them in Europe have died during an outbreak of the disease that peaked in 1993.

In 1997, Canada banned the inclusion of protein from ruminants like cattle and sheep in cattle feed that are believed to be linked to the spread of the disease.

To conclude, the Agency added that an investigation had begun to identify the source of feed the bull ate early in its life, and to locate its herdmates at that time.
