Germans Raid Zoos For Food
As the Mad Cow Disease panic hits Germany and suspected meat is being recalled, butcher shops are empty and restaurants are no longer serving steaks.
During the first BSE scare in November, shoppers switched to game, but they are now being warned that the deer in Germanforests have been fed the same bone-meal feed that was given to cattle.
Scientists have especially cautioned Germans not to eat sausage, which is a staple there, because organ meat is usually ground into the mixture. Lamb may have scrapie and chickens have salmonella.
