 Thousands of Ducks Slaughtered in Tripura to Contain Bird Flu Outbreak

Nearly 3000 ducks have been slaughtered in Tripura following confirmation of a bird flu outbreak on a duck farm in the north-eastern region.

As a precautionary measure, poultry within 3km radius of the duck farm have also been slaughtered. Eggs and feed close to the site have been destroyed as a precaution.

Ricky Thaper, Poultry Federation of India treasurer, said, "There is no likelihood of the disease spreading to other areas, as Tripura state is in one corner of the country and not much poultry is produced in the state. Tripura state does not export poultry to other states because of low production in the area. Hygiene and preventive measures are very effective in the poultry pockets in the country".
