Breeders as far as Punjab, Gujarat and even Maharashtra come to the fair for sale or purchase of the Indian horse breeds. However due to the glanders outbreak, a restriction has been imposed.”Some time back a case came to light in Dholpur and then at Udaipur. The decision has been made to not allow horses at the fair so that the disease does not spread which is fatal for animals. The orders would stand in effect till the time the authorities are sure that the disease has died out completely in the area,” said Ajay Kumar Gupta , Director of animal husbandry department.
The infamy of the disease can be gauged from the fact that an Act is dedicated to just the disease, called the Glanders and Farcy Act. “The latest outbreak is a result of mules being used in brick kilns at Uttar Pradesh. The mules were brought back to Dholpur here the first case was reported in recent times. It then spread to Udaipur and Rajsamand. The disease spreads from equines to humans hence it is very dangerous. An incident was reported in Kishangarh last mont,h” said Bhawani Singh Rathore, additional director, animal husbandry department.
The animal husbandry department has made an appeal to breeders and equine keepers to abide by the orders as it is in their benefit.
