Clinton County Fair Hog Show Closed, Swine Flu Confirmed

The Clinton County Fair Hog Show has been shutdown after at least one case of swine flu was discovered Thursday.

Harry Wright of WCHO-FM in Washington CH reported shortly before 1:00 p.m. Thursday that fair officials had closed the hog show and that the closure was due to a case of swine flu.

Gretta Gray, Director of the Clinton County Ag Society, confirmed shortly before 2:00 p.m. that at least one case of swine flu had been found and that the Hog Barn is now under a state mandated quarantine.

Gray said the hog barn will remain closed to the public throughout the remainder of the fair and that the hog show will be treated as a terminal show, meaning the hogs will not be sold to market, but slaughtered.

The Clinton County Fair runs through this Saturday, July 15th.
