Drahichyn District trains to fight African plague in pigs


to tomin.by, “a complex of actions” will be tested there. Traffic will be blocked,
homeless dogs and all the livestock of private pigs will be eliminated. The method
of killing pigs will be bloodless.   

The local
inhabits were warned about the training session a few weeks ago. The Drahichyn district
local newspaper and TV channel will cover the event. Local inhabits hope that pigs
will not be killed in reality.

Let us remind
you that all pigs were taken away from inhabitants of Nyaznanava village (Navahrudak
District) in February and burnt. The Department of Veterinary and Nutrition Inspectorate
refuted the rumours about the African plague found in those pigs and claimed that
it had been a training session.
