BSE again!

10 February 2001

In Spain the agriculture secretary in Galicia, Castor Gago resigned after it emerged that the regional government was throwing diseased carcases down a disused mineshaft. Galicia only has one incinerator and it broke down last week. As the carcases piled up Gago ordered them to be thrown down the mine shaft until local residents complained of the stench. In France, the foreign minister, Jean Glavany criticised Britain for introducing 'Mad Cow' disease to France. He said Britain would be 'judged morally' for exporting the disease.'
