    If samples have been taken for lab confirmation, it could be up to 12 weeks for culture results. Sorry, not that helpful! As to what will happen, I'm not sure. It may depend on what else is in the park, how secure the park is and if the herd is wild or farmed. I'm guessing the former.

    Dam shame if they have to be completely culled out .
