Twenty buffalo drop dead in Pursat

Around 20 buffalo are believed to have succumbed to foot-and-mouth disease in Pursat province’s Krakor district in recent weeks, villagers and officials said Wednesday. “Since mid-May, 10 buffalo have died in Kamrang village, four in O’Chan village and another three in Toul Andet village,” said San Veng, a resident of Kamrang village. Mao Saro, the chief of the village, said foot-and-mouth disease was the suspected cause of the deaths. “We told villagers to protect their cattle with vaccines, but some people did not because it is expensive,” he said.
