GREENSBORO, Vt. (Reuters) - U.S. Department of Agriculture agents
seized one of two flocks of dairy sheep suspected of having an
ailment related to mad cow disease, one of the shepherds told Reuters
on Wednesday.
``I'm very unhappy about it,'' said Houghton Freeman, one of the
shepherds speaking by phone from his large and remote farm in
Greensboro, Vt.
The farm was surrounded early Wednesday morning by police cars and
men wearing bullet proof vests who herded Freeman's 233 sheep into
trucks that would take them to Iowa to be slaughtered and then
REST AT (if accessible):


Killed and THEN tested. Nice, huh?
