History of Borislav:
Litvinova and her husband bought a duckling in Vietnam seven months ago. “We saw enough horror in Vietnam, how they sell live ducks for food and wanted to save at least one duckling,” Litvinova said.
At first, the duck was called Borei, because they thought it was a male. Later it turned out that the duck is a female, so she became Borislav. The bird has its own instagram, it lives with the owners in the apartment, it is perceived as a child.
When the mistress and Borislav flew to Novosibirsk, the bird was taken. “Leaving the duck at the airport was scary: when the employee of the veterinary control called her boss, he told her over the speakerphone:“ Write out the act, we’ll kill tomorrow, ”said Litvinova.
What else is known:
On April 30, the Rosselkhoznadzor announced that they would return Borislav to the owners when they received the results of the survey. The duck is still in isolation in Tolmachevo.
“The bird responds adequately to feeding, feels satisfactory and daily takes water procedures,” the department said.
Litvinova and her husband lives in Yalta, while in Novosibirsk they were sent to quarantine for two weeks in an observatory.
Earlier, a Spitz named Mila flew from Thailand to quarantine “without the right to walk”. The owner of the dog was threatened with a fine if this requirement is violated. Mila was placed in the observatory with him.
