The U.S. Department of Agriculture is gathering information on a cow that
was ordered destroyed at a West Texas meat-packing plant, a USDA official
said.

USDA spokesman Ed Loyd said Friday he didn't have confirmation on why the
cow was killed Wednesday and added it wasn't immediately clear if a tissue
sample had been taken for a test for bovine spongiform encephalopathy,
also known as mad cow disease.
