Mad Cow disease is back and this time to the south of the Canadian border, Washington state. One single case has been seen in that state and shortly after announcement, Japan and S. Korea closed their border to American beef. The Canadian officials still are waiting for the lab. test response and haven't closed the border to American beef among the others. 9 more countries added to the first 2 shortly after that.
There was a poll in a Calgary radio station and more than 70% voted for retaliation but agriculture minister said they are still waiting for the test result and they sent experts to the US to help them with the case.
