    Meat of hoofed animals banned in Galle

    June 16, 2014

    Selling of meat of the hoofed animals has been banned in the Galle Municipal area with effect from Sunday, according to Galle Acting Mayor Kelum Seneviratne.

    He said the decision had been taken on the instructions of Chief Public Health Inspector of Galle Venura Singarachchi, who had warned of a possible outbreak of foot-and-mouth diseases among the hoofed animals in the areas.

    The disease could have been propelled by the recent floods, Seneviratne, said adding that the Galle Municipal Council’s PHIs would commence inspecting meat stalls from today (16).
