Swine Flu Found At Franklin County Fair

Jul 21, 2017


The Ohio Department of Agriculture says nearly 50 hogs at the Franklin County fair were removed for slaughter Wednesday after at least two animals tested positive for swine flu.

The Franklin County Agricultural Society says livestock areas have been disinfected and no virus was found on the fairgrounds. State officials last week ordered 300 hogs slaughtered at the Clinton County Fair. Officials say the two cases are unrelated.
