Traces of Anthrax found on Aussie sheep
The day-to-day developments in connection with the Australian sheep’s import to Pakistan continue to give a new twist to the story.
Only Wednesday, the discovery of thousands of these sheep from a private compound in Malir District had raised new questions.
Out of these, six were found dead with bleeding mouths. This is not it. More dead sheep were also discovered buried under ground and these had mouths infested with parasites.
Now a fresh disclosure hints at the dead sheep’s being infected by the deadly Anthrax virus. Originally, it was believed that the sheep suffered from scabby mouth disease.
