ASF can be so devastating to pig farming that in the 1970s claims arose that the CIA had colluded in its introduction to Cuba to try to destabilise the Castro regime.

Unfortunately only fatal to literal pigs.

When I read the title I thought it was referring to the constant shooting of innocent people by the pigs in the USA, and that it was spreading to the rest of the world.

In Germany, farmers have called for a cull of 70% of the wild boar population, which is thought to be hundreds of thousands strong.

In Denmark, a fence is planned along the border with Germany to prevent the migration of wild boars.

I can't imagine that causing any issues whatsoever in the future!
