The pigs were culled earlier this week at a farm in the southern city of Tainan after showing symptoms of the disease. Altogether 983 out of the 2,667 pigs on the farm were culled and the rest were vaccinated, the Bureau of Animal and Plant Health Inspection and Quarantine said in a statement. No foot-and-mouth symptoms have been found so far in animals at 11 other farms within a three-kilometre radius of the affected farm, it said.
