The authorities of Primorsky Krai decided to reduce the number of wild boars in the region due to the frequent outbreaks of African swine fever, which in the past year killed hundreds of domestic animals.

According to the press service of the governor, the decision to shoot boars in the border areas of Primorye was made at the emergency antiepizootic commission. In areas of localization of foci of the disease, it is also necessary to reduce the number of domestic pigs.

ASF outbreaks in the region began to be recorded as early as last summer and the situation is still continues to be tense. The main carriers of the virus are wild boars, which regularly come from China.
