1100 Pigs Killed
On a farm in Milheeze (Noord-Brabant) all 1100 pigs were killed on Wednesday, after the ventilation system in the stable had broken down. This was told by a spokesperson of the municipality of Gemert-Bakel of which Milheeze is a part of. The ventilation system on the farm at De Haag in Milheeze, was possible already broken on Tuesday. However, that was only observed on Wednesday. The pigs died due to the high temperatures and the lack of fresh air. On Wednesday, around 6.00 pm, the corpses of the pigs were removed from the stables, with the help of farmers and firefighters, and later transported to the destructor.
