There is now a fourth case of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) in Canada. The Canada Food Inspection Agency has confirmed that a six-year-old cow that was born and raised on an Alberta farm has Mad Cow. This new case is not expected to cause the United States to close its border to Canadian cattle.
The Canada Food Inspection Agency confirmed bovine spongiform encephalopathy was found over the weekend in a six-year-old cross-bred cow born and raised on an Alberta farm.

"This animal … had been showing progressive neurological signs consistent with BSE," Dr. Brian Evans, the agency's chief veterinary officer said at a media briefing in Edmonton on Monday.

It's the fourth such case since May 2003. All have been found in Alberta. A U.S. animal that tested positive for BSE two years ago also came from Alberta.

Alberta's cattle trade has been severely damaged since the first case of Mad Cow. Farmers have lost their lively hood and this will only make things worse. Even is the border doesn’t close, people will still be afraid to eat beef.

Honestly, I feel that much of our food supply is no longer "safe" to eat. We are going to need a revolution in the way we farm.
