QUANG BINH — Police in central Quang Binh Province stopped a van and discovered over 100kg of rotting chickens being transported to be sold as food.
Traffic police late last week stopped the passenger van registered for operation on the Quang Binh - Da Nang route and discovered 104kg of chickens stored in cardboard boxes. The van's driver, Tran Chinh Truong, a resident of the province's Dong Hoi City, did not have legal permits for the chickens, according to authorities.
He confessed to police that the chickens were to be served as food. The province's department of veterinary later verified that the chickens were rotten and could not be used as food.
Police issued a violation to the driver and confiscated the chickens so they could be destroyed. — VNS
