Poultry from Karnataka barred entry


The Department of Animal Husbandry in the Nilgiris has banned poultry from Karnataka entering the district, amid fears of a bird flu outbreak in the State.

Officials from the department said that the ban on poultry entering the Nilgiris has been in place since last week, after reports emerged from Karnataka that there were a few cases of reported bird flu outbreak in Bengaluru and Mandya.

“We have passed instructions to all the checkposts in the Nilgiris ,” an official said.

The department is also spraying avian bird flu disinfectants on vehicles passing through the Tamil Nadu-Kerala border.
