US high security bio lab faces uncertain future

Plans to build one of the world's most secure laboratories in the heart of rural America have run into difficulties.

The National Bio and Agro defence facility (NBAF) would be the first US lab able to research diseases like foot and mouth in large animals.

But reviews have raised worries about virus escapes in the middle of cattle country.

And rising costs have cast doubts over the project's future.

1. That is THE WORST IDEA.

Like Ian Malcolm said in "Jurrassic Park", life willl find a way. It's bad enough they have a level 3 lab there.
