Highly Contagious Bovine TB Found in Minnesota

The Associated Press

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Bovine tuberculosis has been discovered in a cattle herd on the border with Canada _ the first finding in Minnesota since 1971 _ and will lead to the destruction of about 900 animals, state officials said Wednesday.

A federal inspector monitoring the slaughter of a 5-year-old cow in February spotted suspicious internal lesions. Laboratory tests later confirmed the cow had TB, according to the Minnesota Board of Animal Health.
