1 min read

Mysuru: Even as bird flu has added to the worries of the district administration amid Coronavirus scare, compelling the authorities to cull birds and chicks in and around Kumbarakoppal the epicentre of flu, it is not that easy to carry out the culling operation.

For some women, poultry rearing in the backyard of their houses forms the livelihood.

A woman at Bhyraveshwara Nagar raised a strong opposition, when MCC’s rapid action team knocked on her house to cull the chicks.

She made fervent appeals not to kill the chicks. MCC personnel who were convinced with her words, had to eventually budge and vacate from the spot.
 
Since two days district administration and Mysuru City Corporation and Department of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Services are jointly doing culling operation and around 7,000 birds have been culled so far to check the flu.
