    Over 94,000 fowl slaughtered amid bird-flu fears (2017/02/17)

    More than 94,000 fowl were slaughtered last night at a Taipei wholesale poultry market after Council of Agriculture Minister Lin Tsung-hsien announced a ban on the transportation of poultry to prevent the spread of bird flu, aside from chickens raised indoors. The mass cull of fowl was conducted overnight, before the slaughterhouse was shut down and disinfected today. Generally, the markets and poultry farmers have been caught by surprise by Lin’s announcement.

    Epidemic-prevention experts held disinfectant sprays as they sanitized this slaughterhouse at a Taipei market. After this, it will be closed for seven days to prevent a bird flu epidemic.

    In response to a weeklong ban from the Council of Agriculture on the transportation of poultry, slaughterhouse employees had been up all night killing all their livestock.

    The Taipei City Animal Protection Office also sent officials to monitor the cull all night to ensure not a single chicken was overlooked.

    Each fowl must undergo a pre-mortem inspection by specialized veterinarians and if any abnormalities are discovered, they must notify our epidemic prevention unit and we will handle the matter immediately on the spot.

    However, the public is questioning why the Council of Agriculture has not imposed these measures on poultry raised indoors. They wonder if this means the ban on transport of fowl only amounts to a half-hearted attempt

    Lin Tsung-hsian
    Agriculture Minister
    We are not taking this lightly. We are not the way we were two years ago -- completely inexperienced and in a rush. And so, during this period, we hope that agricultural authorities from local governments everywhere will work to guide to entire industry.

    The council says chickens raised indoors are in a much more sanitary environment and the risk of infection is low. Even though there is a seven-day ban on the transportation of poultry, there will be a supply of chicken meat.

    There are also worries that dishonest farmers might slaughter their own fowl and sell their meat illegally. The COA has warned that the maximum penalty for this is a fine of NT$100,000.

    連夜宰殺逾9.4萬隻雞 屠宰場關閉消毒

    農委會主委林聰賢,昨天下午閃電宣布,從今天開始,除了室內飼養的白肉雞,全台家禽禁運、禁宰七天,這讓產地、市場都措手不及。像北市家禽批發市場的屠宰場,工作人員就連夜趕工屠宰家禽,一晚宰殺九萬四千多隻。過了中午,屠宰場也火速關閉消毒,希望阻止疫情擴散。

    防疫人員拿著消毒機具噴灑消毒水,台北環南屠宰場消毒完,就要封閉屠宰場七天,全面防疫。

    因應農委會禁令,前一晚工作人員才連夜電宰完所有家禽。

    動保處還特地派人,徹夜監控,就怕有問題家禽,一隻都不能錯過。

    [[北市動保處防疫檢驗組長 胡金灝]]
    “一定要經過屠檢獸醫師進行屠前檢查。那發現異常,他們就會通報給我們防疫機關,我們會現場立即做一個即時的處理。”

    不過,外界也質疑,農委會既然大動作禁運、禁宰,來防止疫情擴散,怎麼會白肉雞例外,豈不是防疫做半套。

    [[農委會主委 林聰賢]]
    “我們不能掉以輕心。我想我們不會像兩年前一樣,完全沒有經驗,然後就手忙腳亂,所以這段期間,我們希望各個地方政府的農政單位,也要開始來跟所有業者輔導。”

    農委會解釋,白肉雞都是室內養殖,防疫環境更嚴謹,感染風險低。這樣至少這七天市場上仍會有雞肉供應。

    就擔心有不肖業者趁機違法屠宰、販賣家禽,農委會警告,被查獲最高可罰10萬元。
