Japan is a country of wonders and sometimes pretty weird things, but right now the country has another problem. Japan is running out of space to bury chickens. Mass slaughter of chickens in 16 of Japan's 47 prefectures took place because of flu. This season, the bird flu has resulted in the euthanasia of over 17 million chickens, the most ever. In Japan, about 9% of the hens kept for their eggs have been euthanized.
Japan has no place to bury chickens
To stop the virus from spreading, poultry farms and local governments typically bury the dead birds. 16 of the 26 prefectures where outbreaks were reported this season were contacted by NHK. After coronavirus the world definitely does not need another pandemic so Japan seems to take care of the situation as hard as they can.
Nine cases of land shortages were reported by seven prefectures, including Kagawa and Hokkaido. In at least one instance, water filled a hole that had been dug. Hokkaido University professor Sakoda Yoshihiro says that Japan doesn't have much land to begin with. The current chicken crisis is affecting the country in a bad way now.
