SEREMBAN: About 2,000 infected pigs housed at 19 unlicensed farms in Lukut, Port Dickson, have been removed without the knowledge of the authorities, a state executive councillor said today.

Bakri Sawir, who oversees agricultural matters, said the pigs had been infected with African swine fever and were later removed to unknown locations.

He said a total of 273 infected pigs were culled. Several days later, the Negeri Sembilan veterinary officers conducted checks on 19 farms but the pigs were missing.

“We do not have any proof that all the pigs had been culled,” he said.

Bakri also urged the public to report to the veterinary department or the state authorities if anyone tries to sell infected pigs at below market price.

African swine fever was detected at a farm in Kampung Baru Tanah Merah Site A, Port Dickson, on April 9 and the 273 infected pigs were culled on April 13.
