Tanzania Burns 5,000 Illegally-Imported Chicks From Kenya

Tanzania has burned 5,000 chicks that were illegally imported  from Kenya into the country, the Kenyan newspaper Daily Nation reports.

The one-day-old chicks were brought into the country through the northern Namanaga border.

An official in the ministry of livestock, Maria Mashingo, told the Daily Nation that the chicks were imported without the necessary documents and that their entry posed a bird flu risk.

In November, Tanzania burned 6,400 chicks at the same entry point, angering animal rights groups.
