Pigs die of mystery disease in China

A mysterious pig epidemic is spreading in south China's Guangdong province and has killed more than 300 of the animals.

The disease was first found in Silao town about 10 days ago as pigs stopped eating, developed fevers and started haemorrhaging, the Hong Kong-based Ta Kung Pao reported Monday.

Local authorities have disinfected tainted farms and markets and banned the transportation and butchering of pigs in infected areas, the report said.

The disease, which is highly infectious, has caused a panic in the local areas as residents stopped buying pork for fear of eating tainted meat.
