The Department of Hunting and Fisheries of the region set a task for hunters to reduce the density of animals in fixed hunting grounds (up to 0.25 individuals per 1 thousand hectares) and prevent the spread of the disease.
Since there is a serious danger of the spread of African swine fever among wild boars in the territory of the Samara region, the agency requests the users to "take exhaustive measures" to prevent it.
This means that during the hunting season 2019-2020, it is necessary to ensure maximum extraction of wild boars, reducing their habitat density to a value of 0.25 individuals per 1 thousand hectares.
In addition, hunters need to ensure the sampling of biomaterials (lymph nodes, spleen, kidneys, liver, lungs, tubular bone) from all wild boars obtained during the hunt, as well as detected dead boars and animals killed in road traffic accidents for veterinary services.
Officials also recommend feeding wild animals so that their herds do not gather in landfill sites and migrate less. Feeding grounds, of course, must be disinfected.
It is necessary to conduct monitoring at unauthorized dumps in order to detect dead animals in time and send materials for analysis.
And if boars or other wild animals are noticed whose behavior does not correspond to natural behavioral reflexes, any body of the State Veterinary Service of the Russian Federation must be informed about this.
