Taipei, Nov. 17 (CNA) Over 13,000 chickens raised on a farm in Yunlin County were culled Sunday after a case of highly pathogenic avian influenza was confirmed a day earlier.

About 13,220 eight-month old chickens at the farm in Baozhong Township were culled and blanket disinfection operations conducted to prevent the virus from spreading further, said Liao Pei-chih (廖培志), a local government official responsible for animal and plant quarantine affairs.
