About 2000 pigs suspected of being ASF-infected in Port Dickson, Malaysia are missing. The pigs, housed at 19 unlicensed farms in Lukut, were moved to unknown locations without the knowledge of authorities. State executive councilor Bakri Sawir said after veterinary officers culled 273 infected pigs from a farm in Kampung Baru Tanah Merah Site A, they found that the pigs at the other farms were missing. Mr Bakri urged the public to report any live pig sold under market value to the authorities.
