A two year old goat from the Ardeche in France has been found infected with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE or mad cow disease).
Markos Kyprianou, the EU Commissioner for Goats, says the EU food supply is perfectly safe. However, the EU Commission wants to test 200,000 goats across Europe, just to be sure. Mr Kyprianou sounds ominously short of sensible things to do.
If I were a goat, I´d be deeply, deeply worried.
