Decaying pork found in abattoirs

DONG NAI (VNS)— Local police found two abattoirs butchering 24 decaying pigs in southern Dong Nai Province's Thong Nhat District yesterday.

The two owners of the abattoirs admitted to police that they bought the pigs from local farms in the districts, then cut them up to sell in HCM City and Binh Duong Province.

Police allege they could not produce operating licences and documents indicating the origin of the pigs. All the animals were removed for destruction. — VNS
