With the Balearics about to start testing thousands of cattle for mad cow, the agricultural authorities are now considering halting sales of meat from bulls killed by matadors due to fears over mad cow disease. The Agriculture Ministry, one of the agencies grappling with the Spanish chapter of Europe's latest mad cow scare, says it will make a decision before the bullfighting season begins in earnest in mid-March. New European Union rules calling for mad cow tests on all cattle over 30 months of age that are slaughtered for human consumption also apply to bulls. Adult fighting bulls are usually four-years old.
