Afghanistan's Lone Swine Locked Up
Afghanistan's only known pig has been taken off display at Kabul Zoo and locked away to avoid panic among visitors who may be worried about swine flu, the zoo's director said Wednesday, according to a news service report.
"We put the pig temporarily in his winter house under quarantine because of swine influenza," director Aziz Gul said.
"Most people don't have much knowledge about swine influenza, and seeing a pig, they panic that they will be infected.
"Just to address our visitors' concerns, we have put the pig away from public view for the past two days," he said.
