'Minnesota officials are trying to contain an outbreak of bovine tuberculosis. There are 18 cattle herds in Minnesota under quarantine. The disease was first found this spring in a Roseau county herd. Those animals are being slaughtered to help contain the disease. But local ranchers and some state officials worry the disease has spread beyond cattle herds. This fall the DNR will test for infected whitetail deer.'
