Mass Death of Home Birds Observed in Garatepe Village of Barda District
Within approximately 5 days, a mass death of home birds has been observed in 50 families of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) residing in the Garatepe village of Barda district of Azerbaijan. The IDPs are concerned that the mass death is caused by the bird flu virus, Trend Regional Correspondent reports.
Although the IDPs held the vaccination of the birds, as yet there are no results. They have repeatedly appealed to the Barda Veterinary Department, but no measures have been taken.
Expressing his concern over the mass death of the birds, the Head of the Garatepe village municipality, Nizami Abbasov, said that he also appealed to the Barda Veterinary Department, but have been given false promises.
In response, the Head of the Barda Veterinary Department, Aydin Mammadov, stressed that they have not received any information regarding the mass death of the birds. Despite that the IDPs continue to living in the territory of Barda, the State has not allocated any finance for their medication. The IDPs should therefore appeal to the Veterinary Department at their own district.
