Citing safety concerns, the federal government backed off a plan to seize 1,000 cattle from a Nevada rancher on Saturday after a number of activists came out in defense of Cliven Bundy. The rancher has reportedly failed to pay $1 million in fees to the U.S. Bureau of Land Management since 1993 that would allow his cattle to graze. Bundy says that his family’s ownership of the land predates the creation of the BLM, an organization which is controversial in some Western states for its maintenance of the land, which is treated as public by the federal government.

US officials confirm 4th domestic case of mad-cow disease

The diseased animal “at no time presented a risk to the food supply or human health,” the USDA says. Officials discovered the animal at a rendering facility in central California, which they have not chosen to name. During a briefing in Washington, USDA chief veterinarian John Clifford assured reporters that the meat did not enter the food chain and the carcass will be destroyed safely. The first mad cow case in 2003, a cow from Canada shipped to the U.S., caused an extreme dip in beef exports — and some nations to restrict American beef to this day. (hat tip to Breaking News)  source
