Adapec euthanizes 30 illegally transported pigs

Inspectors from the Agricultural Defense Agency (Adapec), during a routine inspection this Monday, 5th, at the Talismã fixed barrier identified a load of animals without animal health documentation and irregular transport. The action resulted in a fine of R$ 1,872.64 to the driver and the seizure and sacrifice of 30 pigs, as they come from the state of Pará, declared as not free from Classical Swine Fever (CSF), thus prohibiting the entry of this animal species in Tocantins, which is considered internationally free of the disease.


 
Adapec's agricultural inspector, Cecílio Reis, explained that at the time of the approach, the cargo driver presented an Animal Transit Guide (GTA) for 45 cattle. However, when checking, they found that there were 52 cattle, 30 pigs and seven horses. “Therefore, seven cattle and seven horses were uncovered from the documentation. The driver returned to the origin with the cattle, accompanied by the Agency's moving barrier to the border of Pará. The horses remained with a faithful custodian to carry out tests for glanders and equine infectious anemia. But the pigs had to be seized because they were prohibited from traveling in the State,” he said.
 

 
According to the director of defense, inspection and animal health Adapec, Regina Barbosa, the Normative Instruction of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply nº 25 of 07/19/2016 provides for the prohibition of the movement of swine from a non-free zone to an area considered free. Furthermore, IN nº 6 of 2004, determines that animals intercepted within the CSF-free zone must be seized and sacrificed. “The driver tried to circumvent the legislation, but our inspectors were attentive and were able to identify the irregularities”, he highlights.

 

 
The president of Adapec, Humberto Camelo, highlighted the importance of the actions carried out on fixed and moving barriers to prevent the entry and movement of animals that could put the health of the State at risk. “To achieve the status of an international zone free from Classical Swine Fever, in 2016, was hard work, which took many years, which is why we have all our attention on protecting the pig herd”, he highlighted.

It is a highly contagious viral disease that affects pigs and can cause fever, multiple hemorrhages and high morbidity and mortality. Pigs and wild boars are the only natural reservoirs of the Classical Swine Fever (CSF) virus.
 
The main forms of transmission are: direct contact between animals (secretions, excreta, semen, blood), entry of animals into the herd without control; spread by people, utensils, vehicles, clothing, instruments and needles; use of food waste without adequate heat treatment in animal feed; transplacental infection.
