From my local paper Warning: 102 Quarantined Pigs Missing Oct 6, 2006 09:21 AM CDT New Media Producer: Kerry Corum Maryland agriculture officials have warned Indiana, Kentucky and nine other states about more than 100 pigs that disappeared from a farm under quarantine. Maryland officials believe the pigs may be infected with trichinosis, a harmful parasite. The quarantine has been in effect since April 1st, when an emaciated pig infected with trichinosis was found on the 112-acre farm. Officials note approximately 102 pigs from the farm are missing. The written warning was sent to agriculture officials in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia, Virginia, Delaware, Georgia, North Carolina and New Jersey. The owners of the Maryland farm were indicted in July on 19 criminal counts, including animal cruelty, feeding garbage to swine and selling contaminated meat on the property.
