Thousands of birds culled in S. Korea
posted by admin on 14/12/06

SEOUL, Dec. 13 (UPI) -- Thousands of quails and other birds have been slaughtered as South Korea tries to contain an outbreak of avian influenza.

The latest outbreak in North Cholla province killed 3,000 birds at a quail farm in Kimje, more than 200 miles southeast of Seoul, the Korea Times reported. Last month, there were outbreaks at two farms in Iksan.

The province is the center of South Korea's poultry industry with about 6,100 farms producing almost one-quarter of the total output. Halim, the country's largest distributor of chicken meat, reports a 30 percent decrease in demand.

Authorities said that the latest cull will involve 290,000 quails at the Kimje farm as well as all poultry within a 3-kilometer (almost 2-mile) radius. That means an additional 352,000 quails, chicken and ducks will be killed.

The farm recently supplied 15,000 young quails to a farm in South Cholla province. So far, avian influenza has not been detected there.
