Sofia News Agency reports on a new proposal: "Ultra-Sound May Divert" Migratory Birds from Bulgaria.
Bulgarian government should invest in the establishment of a special ultra-sound system diverting migratory birds from their Bulgarian route.
The idea was presented by a businessman to the MPs from the agriculture commission during a meeting on Wednesday.
The invasion of bird flu into Bulgaria would cost to the country's economy USD 49 M annually, Ivan Anguelov also said.
Poultry producers and importers reminded that infected meat from birds can be harmless for consumption after thermal procession at more that 70 degrees Celsius.
Mr. Anguelov isn't thinking big enough. Assuming his ultrasound gadget works, diverting infected geese to Greece or Turkey or Hungary will only cause ill will toward Bulgaria. Better to build microwave guns that will cook the geese as they fly through Bulgarian airspace, producing a gentle bombardment of roast-goose MRPs (Meals Ready to Pluck).
