Too easy to blame the wild pork if you ask me... Roll Eyes There is definitely more to the story!

If there is a toxin / bacteria / disease in wild pigs which can affect dogs and people , it surely must be transmissible to domestic pigs who have contact with wild pigs , I have friends with domestic free range sows which are in contact with wild pigs and the only known side affect is the sows regularly have litters of half bred piglets

The NZ public may never know any facts on the matter.
Just be good ti see them back to normal.
The truth behind any events ran amuck a long time ago,just the way it is nowadays.

Does cooking not destroy botulism?

Cooking usually kills most bacteria etc, but not necessarily any toxins they have already produced. But apparently the botulism toxin is deactivated if heated to greater than 80 degrees C.

Yeap.
This pisses me off, was it even a legitimate story??
If the risk is real then why haven't we heard the full story..
All the media concentrate on is dickface trump and Auckland's economy, traffic and housing issues...

If it was the boar that poisoned them I doubt it was botulism.
If it was botulism I doubt it was from the boar.

Hope that makes sense.

Botulism takes about a day to come on.
Never pays to let the facts get in the way of a good headline though...

1080 I feel. With all the attention it is getting at the moment the government would look foolish exposing such findings.

You have to wonder:

Quote:
Health authorities were yet to confirm botulism was responsible for their illness, but it's the only thing they're testing for and family members are responding to antitoxins for botulism.

Samples had been sent to a lab in Queensland, Australia, but there was no timeframe on when they were due back, Varghese said.

"At this stage there are no test results showing that it is botulism, so what do they do when you can't pinpoint what it is and what is happening?


How long do these tests take? Would it not be expedited if these people were so sick? Why are they only testing for botulism?

Something stinks.

Whats the big deal about this? If it was a notifiable or infectious disease we would know by now.

http://www.health.govt.nz/our-work/diseases-and-conditions/notifiable-diseases

If its not, its purely the business of the people who became sick.  I wouldn't expect it to become public. Its a private matter.

The Doctors have said that the people responded to treatment for botulism. That will do me.

I will just make sure that my meat is always well cooked and carry on. I can't fathom the fuss.


Three members of a Waikato family are suffering botulism after eating wild boar meat.

"While we don't know the exact cause and source of this illness, we now believe it is botulism,"  said hospital spokeswoman Lydia Aydon.

"The three patients are responding to botulism anti-toxin and are recovering in hospital.

"We have sent samples off to a specialist centre in Queensland for testing but it may take several weeks before we get the results."
