"The sacrificial animals come from areas in East Java on average. This is because sacrificial animals from there are still safe from nail disease or anthrax attacks," he added.

During this time, he continued in the supervision of sacrificial animals, officers had not found a dangerous disease. As for most diseases found during examination of sacrificial animals such as diarrhea, and disability in the form of broken horns, sprained legs and others.

Regarding whether there is a plan for his party to hold a sacrificial animal exchange, Djoestamadji said there were none.

It is known that sacrificial animal traders have begun to spread their merchandise by occupying empty areas in a number of areas in Surabaya as seen in Rungkut, Sukolilo, Sememi and others. (Ant)
