Mad cow's 'downer' status disputed

The lone U.S. cow with mad cow disease was not a "downer," as federal authorities assert, according to a slaughterhouse worker who says he killed the stricken animal. The claim comes as an international panel told federal officials Wednesday that more U.S. cases of mad cow disease are likely.
David Louthan, a former employee at Vern’s Moses Lake Meat Co. in Moses Lake, Wash., described his experiences with downer cows to Washington state legislators Tuesday.
