FULTON, Mo. (AP) — Authorities have destroyed about 100 domestic hogs from a central Missouri herd that is suspected of contracting a frequently fatal disease from feral hogs.
The Missouri Department of Agriculture says officials focused on the Callaway County herd after feral hogs in the area tested positive for pseudorabies. The disease can spread to other animals, livestock and pets. There are no cases of pseudorabies reported to be found in humans.
