NAGOYA – About 2,800 chicken eggs were found abandoned Sunday morning on the bank of the Oyama River in Komaki, Aichi Prefecture, police said.
They said it is not clear if the eggs were abandoned in connection with the recent outbreaks of bird flu. It is a possible violation of the Waste Disposal Law and police are looking for those responsible.
A man informed the police that he discovered about 280 containers, each holding 10 eggs, in plastic bags on the riverbank. The police said they reported the discovery to health authorities.
