Monday’s Okinawa Times led with a report saying that in response to the spread of swine fever in Okinawa Prefecture, the City of Okinawa announced on Sunday that it had secured land on the premises of the Kadena Ammunition Depot for burying culled pigs. Monday’s Ryukyu Shimpo also gave top coverage to a report saying the City of Okinawa announced on Sunday that it had selected 3,000 square meters of land on the premises of the Kadena Ammunition Depot as a candidate site for burying more than 4,000 culled pigs. The paper added, however, that the authorities who inspected the land on Sunday said it may be difficult to bring in the heavy machinery needed to create pits in the area because the roads leading to the site are narrow.
