African Swine Fever hits large herd in Bulgaria

A herd of 17,000 hogs has been slaughtered because of an outbreak of African Swine Fever in Bulgaria.

It is one of more than 30 outbreaks this month, but by far the largest and is a breeding herd.

Authorities are also slaughtering all hogs within three kilometres of the outbreak in the north-west of Bulgaria, near Romania.
