A case of scrapie, a fatal disease affecting sheep and goats, has been confirmed in an Alberta sheep.
Alberta Lamb Producers said today that the disease was confirmed in late June in a sheep that had lived on multiple premises. Two Alberta flocks have now been quarantined. Their location was not disclosed.
Scrapie is a reportable disease and a type of transmissible spongiform encephalopathy in the same broad category as BSE. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is now investigating.
