According to the latest, unofficial information, at least 107 cows have died, and a mild form of the infection has also been detected in six persons, including two children. They have been provided with medical assistance at the Sisak General Hospital, but experts say there is no need for hospitalisation.

Based on samples taken from the carcasses, the Ministry of Agriculture has confirmed that the disease in question is anthrax.

Given that this is free-grazing cattle, the number of dead cows is most likely not final.

The Ministry of Agriculture and the State Inspectorate are coordinating the necessary activities and measures in the pastures near Osekovo, about 70 km southeast of Zagreb, to prevent the spread of the infection, the Ministry said in a press release.
