  • Description

    A REGULAR AIRLIFT OF CATTLE AND PIGS FROM WEST GERMANY TO WEST BERLIN BEGAN TODAY (MONDAY). THE AIRLIFT IS BY BOEING 707 JET FROM HAMBURG AND HAS BEEN ARRANGED TO BEAT THE BAN ON OVERLAND MOVEMENT OF CATTLE ACROSS EAST GERMANY TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF FOOT AND MOUTH DISEASE.

    THE ANIMALS ARE TO REPLENISH WEST BERLIN'S DWINDLING STOCKS FOLLOWING THE EAST GERMAN BAN ON OVERLAND TRANSPORT.

    MORE THAN 7,700 PIGS AND 620 COWS ARE TO BE AIRLIFTED TO BERLIN IN TWICE-WEEKLY FLIGHTS. TODAY'S FLIGHT CARRIED 39 COWS AND 60 PIGS.

    WEST GERMAN CITY OFFICIALS SAY THEY DO NOT EXPECT AN EARLY END TO THE DAN ALTHOUGH THE EAST GERMAN AUTHORITIES HAVE SAID THAT IT IS ONLY A TEMPORARY MEASURE. THE BAN WAS IMPOSED IN JANUARY.
