8 October 2014, at 12:24am

ESTONIA - Six wild boar are reported to have tested positive for the African swine fever virus in the last 10 days.

There have been no reports from the Estonian veterinary authority to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) describing new outbreaks of African swine fever.

However, three reports dated between 26 September and 6 October record a total of six wild boar that have been found dead and subsequently tested positive for the virus.

Four of those animals were found in Roosilla near Vijandi in the centre of the country. Two of the most recent cases were identified in Aitsa, which is in the south, near to the border with Latvia.
