Proposed Malaysian pig farm too close to homes
The proposed RM100 million pig-rearing project in
Sepang is not welcome by the more than 20,000 residents appalled by the
proximity of the facility to their homes.
Kampung Tumbuk village head Mohd Tarmudi Tushiran said the project's site
was fewer that five minutes away from the nearest village. "We don't have
anything against pig farming. Our main concern is its location. Why can't the
authorities locate the project on an island, for example, away from the people?â€
One of his main concerns is potential disease outbreaks.
memorandums have been submitted to the Selangor government to protest against
the pig farm, which once completed, would relocate all small farms in the area
under one roof. The state government had stated that it would hire foreign
experts to carry out a study on the million project. Subscribe here to the free Pig Progress
