Livestock infected with scabies in South Darfur

The authorities of Manawashi, South Darfur, have warned citizens against buying “illegal meat” (i.e. meat not slaughtered according to health regulations), due to an outbreak of rabies among cows and camels. A citizen informed Radio Dabanga that butchers are selling more and more ‘illegal meat’, especially from cows and camels that had died without being slaughtered, adding that the authorities arrested a number of butchers who had sold dead cows’ meat at the weekly market on Monday.  The ‘illegal meat’ was confiscated and burned. The citizen reported the outbreak of rabies among cows and camels, besides other diseases, and appealed via Radio Dabanga to the citizens not to buy such meat and demanded from the veterinary authorities to tighten controls on butcheries and butchers.File photo (Albert González Farran/Unamid) Related: Scabies epidemic in West Darfur (12 September 2013)‘Scabies in West Darfur came from Jebel ‘Amer’: Minister (13 September 2013)
