The Agriculture Department on Friday ordered 376 imported sheep to be destroyed after tests showed they might be infected with a sheep equivalent of mad cow disease. Tests of four slaughtered sheep found evidence of a version of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, the scientific name for the always-fatal mad cow disease, officials said. The tests mean the animals could have had the same disease that killed 53 people and devastated the beef industry in Britain in 1995.
