    • Biologically, the symptoms of the relatively common disease of scrapie in sheep are very similar to those of BSE.
    • Since 1997, almost 300 Quebec farmers have been ordered to destroy more than 12,000 sheep feared to be carrying the disease called scrapie.
    • Healthy sheep inoculated with tissue from animals with scrapie took years to develop symptoms, far longer than for any other known infection.
