The animals were taken near the border gates in Bos Rumduol commune in the early hours of November 4th.

By November 7th, more than 80 had died and 200 pigs were still without food or water as nobody appears to want to take responsibility until blood tests are complete to check whether the animals carry African Swine Fever or other contagious diseases. NKD.
