Egg burning is justified by a city official

At the Bredco Port on Sunday, authorities intercepted 240,000 eggs worth P1.4 million without permits. The city veterinarian of Bacolod decided to burn the eggs.

Negros Occidental and Bacolod City veterinarian Dr. Maria Agueda de la Torre said they burned and buried the eggs in order to protect their poultry industries against bird flu.

Javier Miguel “Javi” Benitez, Mayor of Victorias City, posted a social media message last week expressing his dismay at the destruction of the confiscated eggs.

Using Hiligaynon dialect, the mayor wrote on Facebook: Kanugon sang parsing sang 240,000 nga itlog o 8,000 trays worth P1.4M in Bacolod City. Tani may mas maayo nga solution para diri It’s a waste that 240,000 eggs.

He continued I can’t just keep quiet. I need to air my sentiments. I cannot just keep quiet. I need to air my sentiments. Victorias City Mayor Alfredo Abelardo “Albee” Benitez Jr. is the son of Bacolod City Mayor Alfredo Abelardo Benitez, Jr.

Social media users commented on the post of the younger Benitez, most of whom agreed with his opinion. At the port of Cebu, authorities detained a shipment of eggs aboard a trailer truck from Bantayan island.

The shipper’s permit has already expired, and he has not presented any other relevant documents. According to her, the truck’s personnel told them they had crossed from Cebu to Negros Occidental in Escalante City and were headed to Iloilo.

“They were just supposed to deliver 340 trays of eggs in Bacolod City before heading to Iloilo,” she said. The shipper “has no permit” even though Bantayan is considered free of bird flu.

“It would still affect our poultry industry even if it was just one tray. There is a new strain of avian influenza that can wipe out all chickens on one farm if it is infected. There are strains that can actually infect humans,” de la Torre explained.

We buried the confiscated eggs after smashing, burning, disinfecting, and burning them. As part of a joint executive order issued late last year, Negros Occidental governor Eugenio Jose Lacson and Bacolod City mayor Benitez established guidelines for banning live domestic and wild birds,
