Pig culling in Sabah?

The pig owners' crisis in Malacca where they are force to cull 97,000 heads of pig by Friday (Sept 21) might had reared its ugly heads into Sabah.

A businessman involved in the industry here related to me this morning that, without being told, rearers in the West Coast of Sabah had began to reduce their animals by slaughtering young ones. When I asked for the reasons, the businessman said `business strategy'.

My Say:

Such an action might be connected to the Malacca pigs' crisis but I am inclined to assume that it could be a tactic to reduce supply in order to jack-up price thus burdening consumers.
