African Swine Fever

A major outbreak of African Swine Fever (ASF) is occurring in Europe and Asia. Many wild boar in these countries have become infected and most die.

ASF is highly contagious and infects both domestic and wild pigs. In Europe, the disease is moving back and forth between these populations making eradication difficult.

ASF is not a danger to humans or your dogs but an outbreak would be devastating for the New Zealand economy.

Pigs with ASF are slow-moving, may have diarrhoea, and often you will see blood spots on their organs when you open them up.

If you see any dead or sick wild boar, Call the MPI hotline straight away with their GPS location, Ph 0800 80 99 66.
