Why was the parah aduma found in 2002 disqualified?

In 2002, various news sources reported that a red heifer was found and the Temple Institute in Israel declared it kosher. Many of these sources later reported that the parah aduma was disqualified later that year, but I cannot find any information on why it was disqualified. Does anybody know why the 2002 red heifer was disqualified?
