UPGRADE QUARANTINE PLEASE

RECENTLY A BATCH OF APPROXIMATELY 330 PIGEONS ARRIVED IN SOUTH AFRICA AND WAS TAKEN UP IN THE KEMPTON PARK STATE QUARANTINE STATION. THE LARGE MAJORITY OF THEM WAS PIGEON FOR THE CARNIVAL CITY INTERNATIONAL ONE LOFT RACE.

FORMING PART OF THIS GROUP OF 330 WAS 23 DE RAUW SABLON PIGEONS THAT WE IMPORTED. ALSO WAS THERE 10 BIRDS ADDRESSED TO THE ARMSTRONG BROTHERS AND OTHERS FOR SOME FANCIERS IN SA.

 LISTEN TO THIS: NEARLY 10% OF THE BIRDS DIED IN QUARANTINE AND THE OTHERS ARRIVED AT OUR LOFTS IN A TOTAL SICK CONDITION, BADLY UNDERFED AND SAT ON THE LOFTS FLOOR FOR 12 DAYS BEFORE THE FIRST ONE FLEW TO A PERCH. WE LOST 2 BIRDS IN THE QUARANTINE AND HAD TO ELIMINATE A THIRD ONE ON RECEIVING THEM.

 AFTER FOUR PHONE CALLS TO THE HEAD OF THE QUARANTINE STATION, MR. LIMBA, WE ARE STILL UNSUCCESSFUL TO GET THE RINGS OF OUR DEAD BIRDS. THE MORTALITY REGISTER SEEMS TO BE NOT UP TO DATE AS THEY CANNOT REALLY SAY WHETHER THE PIGEONS DIED OR JUST WENT MISSING.

 THE ARMSTRONG BROTHERS HAD THE SAME EXPERIENCE WITH THE STATION AND LOST 5 OF THERE 10 IMPORTED PIGEONS. WE NEED SOME PRESSURE FROM THE INTERNATIONAL AND LOCAL PIGEON BODIES TO GET THE STANDARD UP.

CART BLANCE, A LOCAL TV AWARD WINNING PROGRAM, THAT SPECIALIZES IN THIS TYPE OF INVESTIGATIONS, WAS NOT INTERESTED IN MY CALL FOR HELP, AS THEY HAVE TO MUCH WORK AND WILL NOT EVEN PHONE ME BACK
