 Chickens Culled in Nepal Farm

Following confirmation of an outbreak of bird flu, about 350 chickens have been culled in Nepal farm.

Bal Krishna Bhusal, chief of the district public health office, told Xinhua that health officials have disinfected the farm in Bhainsepati of Lalitpur district.


They have also conducted medical tests on people living in the area.

Bhusal said the owner of the farm claimed 6,000 chickens have died. But the authorities provided compensation for only 350 chickens.

He said there was no other farm in the area, but as a precaution chickens within three km radius needed to be culled.
