"OTTAWA (CP) - An Alberta cow may have been stricken with Canada's seventh case of BSE, or mad cow disease.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is conducting additional tests in Winnipeg on the remains of the four-year-old cow suspected of having bovine spongiform encephalopathy. Initial results are consistent with tests conducted previously in Alberta, CFIA officials said.
If found to be infected, the Alberta cow would be Canada's seventh confirmed case of BSE and the second in the last week. Officials expect to confirm their findings by week's end. The agency confirmed last week that a cow in Manitoba died of BSE. "
