Seventh case of BSE confirmed by federal officials

ALBERTA - A four-year-old Alberta cow died of mad cow disease, government officials have confirmed. The Edmonton-area farm where the cow died remains under quarantine as officials investigate whether the cow had any calves. The case marks the seventh Canadian cow to die of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or BSE. It also marks the second case discovered in the span of a week. A cow in Manitoba was confirmed last week as Canada's sixth BSE death.
