Helping Foot-and-Mouth Disease

NPR's Julie McCarthy reports that the British government has called-in its military to help with the outbreak of foot-and mouth disease there. Nineteen new cases were found yesterday. Farmers are furious about the government's handling of slaughtered animals, as corpses pile up and rot. The tourism industry faces hundreds of millions of dollars in losses.
