Preparation for Culling Begin at Belghat, Rajangaon and Dhaamnia

After the detection of positive bird flu samples in the village of Jalgaon the health authorities have ordered house to house checking of any birds and then killing them. Already culling was completed in 23 villages in Burhanpur district. The authorities have stated to prepare their next face of culling operation in three villages of Barwani district. The main reason to extend the culling operation to these three villages is due to prevent the spread of the avian flu to these nearby districts.

It is just a preventive measure. The villages where culling will begin for 2,500 odd birds include Belghat, Rajangaon and Dhaamnia. Five Rapid Action Response Teams have been instituted for this purpose in Barwani district and all basic preparations were made for the culling and disposal operation. Commissioner of Veterinary Services, Dr Rajesh Rajora told the press the importance and the necessity to initiate culling operation in these villages. Dr Rajora said the culling and disposal work along with house-to-house mop up has been completed successfully in villages around Ichhapur from where positive samples were confirmed. As of now the disinfecting work is being carried on in 2,450 houses in these villages.
