Hungary detects CSF in wild boars

25-01-2007 | |

Hungary’s animal health authorities have detected the Classical Swine Fever (CSF) virus in three wild boars in the North of the country.

It is thought that the disease may have been caused by vaccination in nearby Slovakia.

Last week, Bulgarian veterinary health authorities said that they had detected an outbreak of CSF and would slaughter 164 animals to prevent the disease from spreading.
