In the Kherson region burned about 9 thousand wild birds died in the Black sea from pasteurellosis. This was announced by the head of Department of food safety and veterinary medicine head Department of Derepressible in the Kherson oblast Mr. Vladimir Boyarsky, reports “UKRINFORM”.

Dead birds brought to the coast of Kalanchak district, Kherson region in early January.

“The reason for the bird deaths was a bacterial disease pasteurellosis. For today from what has already been gathered and burned (carcasses of dead wild waterfowl – ed.) We can talk in General about about 9 thousands of dead birds. Most of them are coots and two swans and two ducks,” said Boyarsky.

All dead birds found on the coast in Kalanchatsky district, was nailed to the coastal zone with a length of 6 kilometers.

“Most likely, they were lost somewhere in the sea. And the sources of contamination is the cross – section (in the Northern black sea – ed.), migration routes of Western Europe, from the Russian Federation, so probably somewhere from there (brought the birds, the disease – ed.),” said Boyarsky.

“But where was the source, it is now possible to guess only, after all, among the dead birds found no birds ringed (with the information you need to identify where it came from – ed.)”, – he added.
