Another Dead Boar Detected in Poland

As the Rosselkhoznadzor learned from the Polish media on the 19th May this year, a dead boar was detected in a pond close to Wałbrzych, Lower Silesian Voivodeship located in the south-western part of Poland not far from the Czech border. The dead animal was detected by one of the residents who took several attempts to notify different services about the situation. The dead animal was caught and taken away only after the resident of the city said she was going to request assistance at the local prosecutor’s office, since she had not get the expected response. The Polish media provide no further information on the situation.

Unfortunately, despite numerous requests for the national veterinary services of Poland the Rosselkhoznadzor has so far received no documented results of the epidemic investigation into this and other similar cases, whereas African swine fever was still reported in the country.

The disease spread in population of wild boars may have rather drastic consequences for Poland and countries bordering on Poland.
